Chase the Ace funds to help feed students at Hartland Community School

The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 24 in Harland delivered financial support to the Hartland Community School Hot Lunch program through its Chase the Ace fundraiser on Dec. 7.

Branch President Gary Bovard explained that Hartland Legion presented HCS principal Andy Clark with a cheque for $500 from its Chase the Ace proceeds. He said the branch directs money raised through the popular ongoing fundraising event to community projects.

“The donation is to help with unfunded costs associated with the school’s “Hot Lunch” program,” said Bovard. “We believe every child deserves a nourishing lunch, and thanks to the community support of our ‘Chase the Ace,’ we are happy to support worthy community endeavours such as this.”

Legion treasurer Cheryl Broad presented the cheque to Clark during a Thursday afternoon visit to the school.

She and Bovard encouraged others in the greater Hartland community to support the vital lunch program.

“The Legion would like to challenge the local business community to step up and match this donation, or at least consider a donation to this worthy fund,” Bovard said.
