Yesterday saw the close of another Portage la Prairie Rotary Club book sale, at the Portage Mall.

Book sale co-chair Derek McCutcheon describes support for this way.

"I think it's awesome," he says, "I'm just so pleased the public supports us like this. We've had good traffic flow from Thursday through today (Saturday)."

McCutcheon doesn't have a total yet, but tells us how the funds raised will be used.

"This actually is part of the money that we'll use this year," he says, "For things like our foreign student that's here on exchange. Things like out commitment to Republic of Manitobah Park, which has been re-named Rotary Republic Park."

McCutcheon's grateful for the community's response, once again.
