Every year, the Dundee Christmas Fair donates the proceeds from the event to a community organization. This year, that organization was the Communic-Action Project, which promotes the health and well-being of elderly people living at home. A total of over $5,800 was donated to the non-profit organization, including $3,000 in contributions from Huntingdon MNA Carole Mallette and the provincial government, $1,000 from the Caisse Desjardins du Haut-Saint-Laurent, a few local businesses, and the proceeds from table rentals and raffles during the fair. “The proceeds far exceeded our expectations,” says Communic-Action director Lynn McWhinnie, who notes their involvement with the annual Christmas Fair represented a great opportunity to shine a light on their services.
