The Social held in Manitoba on September 13th was a huge success! Raising over $13,000 many people came out to support this Event.

This Social was put on in memory of Steve Maryniuk with all proceeds going to The Angels Anonymous Connection. Jerry and Sharon Maryniuk did a spectacular job of putting this together. Board members Mel Parkinson and Jim Matthews flew down to Winnipeg from Edmonton to attend the event and help out wherever they could. They had a great time.
We heard from Jerry and this is regarding one of the 52 Auction items.

Here is the broom that was raffled off at our fundraiser Sep 13/14………..
The broom and arrangements provided by friend Bill Stewart

The winning bid was Carlee Maier who gave the broom to her husband Ryan Maier a huge curling fan (seen with the Jones Team).
The girls are wearing their GOLD Olympic Medals & Team Canada uniforms.

The day (Sep 18) was very special as a mural depicting the Jones Team was unveiled at the St.Vital Curling Club and the renaming of the street (now called “Team Jones Way”).
Sharon & I attended and got the broom signed.
