The Timber Kids of Horsefly have been working hard this fall to raise funds for their school.
Over two full days on the Oct. 22-23 weekend they processed 12 cords of firewood, which they delivered and stacked for residents.
Then on Monday, Oct. 24 they worked with more children to fill 75 sandbags to sell at the local gas station as another fundraiser for the school. On both of these assignments, the work was tough and the wood and sandbags were heavy, but the kids worked hard and kept going until the jobs were done.
No grumbling of any sort. Very focused. Horsefly school is very proud of them. More orders for firewood have since been received and processed by the group.
The Timber Kids plan to do another firewood fundraiser again next year, probably starting earlier around September. There are currently 64 students at Horsefly Elementary Junior Secondary School. Proceeds from the firewood and sandbag sales help to fund student field trips and learning equipment for the year.
