Part of the raffle proceeds went towards a scholarship. WCA President Alan Roberts presented the cheque to Sue Atkin, Parks Specialist on behalf of the recipient Carson Boyecko who was not able to attend in person because he is studying at Lethbridge College’s Natural Resource Compliance/ Conservation Enforcement Degree program.

Our scholarship recipient Carson Boyechko is 20 years old and reins from Chater, Manitoba located just east of Brandon. He is currently enrolled in Lethbridge College’s Natural Resource Compliance/ Conservation Enforcement Degree program, as a second-year student. This was his first year as a Park Patrol Officer and he was stationed in West Hawk Lake, Whiteshell Provincial Park, Manitoba. He has aspirations of working in his home province of Manitoba as a full time Conservation Officer. He has a tremendous passion for both hunting and fishing and strongly believes in Conservation. He hopes to gain full time employment with Manitoba Sustainable Development after he graduates to continue his dreams of conservation and protection of his passions.

Cheque presentation to Ainsley Kullman on behalf of Camp Quality Manitoba. Camp Quality Canada is a volunteer, non-profit, charitable organization that strives to improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through camps and year-round family support programs.

The remaining proceeds will be used to begin a program to eradicate purple loosestrife in the park.
