Special thanks to the Alberni Valley News

To the Editor,

On behalf of Special Olympics B.C. Port Alberni, I would like to thank the Alberni Valley News for supporting our organization.

The photos and captions printed by you bring great satisfaction to our athletes and educate the public.

I would also like to thank the people of Port Alberni, for their generosity during our tag days last week. We raised $4,747. Without the help of those who live in our community we would not be able to offer sporting opportunities that enables us to improve the quality of the lives of our special athletes.

Watch for our members selling raffle tickets, you could win WestJet prizes.

Anne Evans,

local co-ordinator,

Special Olympics,

Port Alberni
