Thank you to all the volunteers who helped out with the Bottle Drive, together we raised $4130.20 towards general operations of the cross country and biathlon race teams. That is 41,302 cans/bottles!!!!
Athletes, parents and coaches, participated by donating cans/bottles, canvassing their own neighborhoods as well as knocking on doors in other areas. We had a dedicated crew of sorters/counters and many others stayed to help with this large task after completing their own canvassing. A big thank you goes out to all who helped in advance to promote the fundraiser, collect/sort/count & return refundables. It was a big group effort on the Sunday and a few hours for a smaller group the following day to get it done. A few families even canvassed in Summerland, kudos to them for working around the biathlon training schedule and a couple of families canvassed in Kelowna and returned bottles on that side. Special thank you to the Paynter-Akins family for the use of their property. As was said to the TA and T2T groups “pat yourselves on the back for a fabulous team effort” Go Team Telemark! and hopefully Pip & Lisa don’t have any more random passersby stopping in to ask about the new bottle depot 😉
Remember that you can still add to this fundraiser by using the our account number (250-707-5925) whenever you return refundables to any “Return-it” location. Our account number is the Telemark general phone number. Thanks Again! Adam Elliot
