It was a cold, blustery day on October 30th, when he climbed aboard his bike and pedalled from Cambridge-Guelph to Saugeen First Nation, a distance of some 175 km.

He raised $350 which, upon arrival, he donated to the Church fund in the event that it is re-built.

    Money was presented to Church Treasurer                                  Janice Mason
