The fundraising spaghetti supper on November 10th for our dear friend Kika Paiva, who is currently battling cancer, was a great success. We were deeply touched by the generous support received by our community. We estimated that over 500 plates were served that evening. This event couldn’t have been the success that it was without the help and donations from individuals, families and businesses. The following is a list of those who helped us reach our goal in supporting a friend in need:
Town of Cochrane will be invaded with Northern Beauties this weekend!
