Members of the Rideau Lakes Flying Club/COPA Flight 56 were pleased to receive a cheque for $1,500 through the Volunteer Grant Program of the Bank of Montreal. This grant was awarded to RLFC on behalf of BMO Financial Group for the purpose of upgrading the club kitchen facilities. The cheque was presented May 29, 2010 on the occasion of the RLFC breakfast fly/splash-in to the president of the club, Ted Theelen, by Bev MacDonald a retired employee of Bank of Montreal. COPA President Kevin Psutka was on hand to help celebrate to occasion.
The reason why the presentation was made with Bev seated is she slipped and broke her ankle. The presentation was made while waiting for the ambulance to arrive.
