GREGG CHAMBERLAIN Things got hot at the very last minute for the Rockland Flood the Love Telethon, Saturday night at the Optimist Performance Hall. Telethon rocks the weekend in Rockland “We got a big anonymous donation after we finished,” said Stéphanie S i m a r d , g e n e r a l manager for TVC22 commun- ity tele-

The anonymous donor’s gift pushed the final total for the eight-hour telethon for flood relief to $11,376. The money will go into the TD/Canada Trust Rockland flood relief trust account, set up for all of the vari- ous donations that local community groups, businesses, and individuals have provided during the past few weeks, to assist Rock- land homeowners and families affected by last month’s flooding of the Ottawa River. Simard sits on the eight-member committee overseeing the trust fund and she noted that the committee will soon announce details of the application process for funds from the account to aid flood victims. Centraide- UnitedWay Prescott-Russell is assisting the committee in working out the application process. Meanwhile, telethon organizers are tallying all donations still coming in since the telethon wrapped up Saturday night. Simard expressed great satisfaction at the support of both, themusicians and singers who took to the stage at the Optimist Per- formance Hall for the live broadcast, and for the volunteers who worked behind the scenes manning the phone bank, operating the video cameras, and welcoming specta- tors to the hall. “We had tonnes of fun from 12 til 8,” Simard said. Other groups have their own flood relief events coming up.The Bourget Recreation Committee will dedicate a special bingo

session at the end of themonth to the flood relief fund, and the Hammond Golf Course hosts a flood relief tournament on June 16.
