Senior of the year

Cake for a cause


Sarah Dagg, teacher at Vankleek Hill Col- legiate Institute (VCI), organized a cake auction June 12, with funds going toward a trip to the Stratford Festival during the next school year for her students. A professional auctioneer auctioned off 32 cakes, which raised more than $873 to go toward the student’s trip. The trip will include several plays, tours and a scavenger hunt, as well as accommodations, meals and transportation. Some cakes went for as high as $65. Students and teachers walked away with their cakes and big smiles. The afternoon proved to be a sweet one at VCI.

A businessman, Bonneau has been involved with the church, the Knights of Columbus and many community events. He purchased L’Orignal Packing Ltd. in 1971 and ran the company with the assistance of his two brothers, Yvan and Claude, and his controller, Roger Barbarie, until 2006 when he passed the business onto his son, Benoit. “I am sure there are probably a lot of seniors that should be recognized,” said Mayor Barton. “But we could only pick one.” Bonneau’s family was present for the award, which was received with applause and photographs.
