Winkler’s Harvest Festival is all done and the parade has passed us all by but yet the effect of the day has not ended. Each year, the Winkler Fire Department selects a charity for which they collect donations. We see the fire trucks and we also see the fire fighters walking along, each with a boot in hand and people drop their donation into the boot.
This year all those donations; large and small, came to a total of $6,694.83. A wonderful and unexpected boost to the work of Eden Health Care Services in bringing hope, healing and community to people on a mental health journey..
The fire department made the presentation of the funds at Eden Foundation’s 17th Annual Head for the Hills cycling event held on Saturday September 7th.
