From the top of our organization to the base and back up again, thank all of you who this evening such a great success…from being fans in Section D (CJNU volunteers, our friends from the Winnipeg Foundation and Pegasus Publications and the Twilights), to running the display table, ESPECIALLY to the gang who stepped up to the plate when we were desperate for 50 / 50 sellers (and sold over $5, 000).

It started at 5:30 and ended at 11 PM but it was weeks in the planning and hours in the execution.
Thanks all! A CJNU Home Run!

People often joked that Lena was so small they didn’t allow electric razors, otherwise the street lights would go … Read More
