The Stratford-on-Avon Shrine Club made a presentation of a Water Jel burn kit to the St. Marys Fire Department yesterday. The Club has donated these kits to all local fire departments. The kits are used to help heal fire related injuries. Pictured at the presentation were (from left) Shriner Bill Porter, Acting Fire Chief, Brent Dundas and Shriner Dave Shearer.

Around lunchtime on Thursday, Jan. 21, Little Falls Public School held its first ever “Road Hockey Challenge for Mental Health and Wellness.” The whole school went hockey crazy Thursday, as all Grade 1-6 students had a chance to play road hockey and it was also Jersey Day. Five members of the St. Marys Lincolns came by to help out, including Trent Dundas (pictured). Taking the first faceoff of the day was Mason Boonstra, left, and Lydia Taylor. The Lincolns and Little Falls will be teaming up again tonight for “Lincolns-Little Falls Community Partnership Night in support of Mental Health and Wellness,” at the Pyramid Centre. Besides the Lincolns game, which begins at 7:30 pm, other attractions include a Chuck a Puck Challenge with a prize provided by the members of Leading Mentally Healthy Schools, and the National Anthem sung by LFPS students. Half of the funds raised by Little Falls tonight goes towards their School Community Wellness Space in the Taylor Library.
