THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Squad Gets Donation
Roy Lorenz, President of the Bagley & Brazeau Joyriders Snowmobile Club, presented a check for $1,800 to Sue Kanack, President of Brazeau Rescue Squad, on April 15. The money was raised at their annual Land-owner Appreciation Dinner and fundraiser for the Brazeau Ambulance.
For years the Bagley & Brazeau Joyriders Snow-mobile Club held as one of their social events a dinner and snowmobile ride. In 2004, the club decided to expand the event and make it more of a landowner appreciation dinner, thanking them for allowing riders to cross their land. A total of 128 people attended, including 57 landowners.
In 2004 Joyriders Club made a decision to give back to the community by making this a fundraiser for the Brazeau Ambulance. The ambulance since then has purchased special equipment to rescue injured snowmobilers on the trails. Considering some trails are in remote areas, the addition of the equipment is a service to the community and the snowmobilers. Since 2004, the club has raised $10,800 for the Brazeau Ambulance.
Lorenz thanks the members and 44 area businesses who donated door prizes to help make the event a success. He also thanks the members and Kathy Lorenz and Linda Houtger, secretary.
