GoFund Me Page by Shannon Link Click here
This week I posted about the GoFund me page to raise money for a bench in memory of Dale “Scoon” Scott. As Shannon said: “he was a champion for our town of Carleton Place. His passion for volunteering was amazing and there were a lot of projects that wouldn’t have gotten off the ground if it weren’t for Dale.”
Many wondered on The Tales of Carleton Place why the town of Carleton Place was not aiding in this fundraiser, as not only was he a champion for this town, he was also Citizen of the Year. So, I sent a note to ALL our council members and Councillor Sean Redmond called me yesterday.
He agreed with what Shannon was doing 500% and when I asked why the town was not aiding the fundraiser he said: ” No one has ever contacted the town about it.” Maybe someone else has been contacted, but that was the answer I got from Sean as he had no knowledge of it, and Sean has never steered me wrong.
So I am going to send this to Shannon so she knows he can be contacted for help.
Thanks Shannon for doing this and to Sean for his help. It is such and amazing idea!
