Alexander Galt makes the Emma-Rose Fund its charity of the year!

The 2001 – 2012 school year at Alexander Galt Regional High School was quite a special one, especially for the Emma-Rose Fund.  Early in the year, the Student Council decided that it would make the Emma-Rose Fund its charity of the year.  As the year progressed, not only did donations increase, but also a new community of Emma-Rose Champions became more aware of what families of MPS children go through on a regular basis.

The students started supporting the Emma-Rose Fund by selling carnations.  The love of flowers was only surpassed by the love that the community was developing for Emma-Rose.

Then there was the dance.  It was a wonderful night with many students coming out to support the cause.  Homemade snacks were donated for the canteen and were gladly consumed throughout the evening by the hungry students…and staff too!

After various contests, there was an auction to see who would have the honour of shaving Clement Molinor Roy’s hair, the Student Council President. His prom date, Alexandra Robb, won the bidding claiming, “If I am going to prom with him, then I get to cut his hair”.  Halfway through the shaving, another student bid more money for the privilege of finishing the job. It was priceless!

The final event of the year was a supper, once again organized by the Student Council. The owner and staff of Sebby’s in Lennoxville prepared three different meals for a full house of diners to choose from.  Everyone left more than satisfied with their meals and the knowledge that they were supporting a very worthy cause.

After all was said and done, the community and students of Alexander Galt raised and donated $4000 for the Emma-Rose Fund.  No words will ever quantify the Emma-Rose Fund’s gratitude for all the love and support received from this amazing community in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Go Pipers!!
