Mini-Carnival Raises $600

The mini-carnival that took place at MacLean Park last weekend was a success.


$600.00 was raised by those in attendance, who had the chance to throw a pie in the face of public figures, such as City Councillors and 102.9 CHTM's own Max Healey.


The four-hour festival was put on in the wake of the tragic death of three boys just outside Nelson House at the end of April. 


The money will be used for a memorial to honour the victims of the car crash, as well as helping to build a new bike path and to get extra lighting along the road.

NCN Council member Bonnie Linklater accepted the funds at the end of the carnival, and said that she thanks everyone for their support from the bottom of her heart, and that it's “beautiful as everyone comes together as a community for our youth”.
