Pool Fundraiser: 0050.0977


            The Cranbrook Kinsmen Club has pledged the proceeds from the raffle of the new 1969 Pontiac shown above to the new Cranbrook swimming pool, except for 10% which will go to Sam Steele Days.  This annual Sam Steele Days project has proven very successful in the past and should be more so this year, with the funds earmarked for such an important project.

            Shown above, middle, is chairman of the Public Relations Committee for the new swimming pool project, Hunt Strang, thanking Ron Hull of the Kinsmen club, at right.  Art Draper of Pioneer Motors, left, donated the $4,180 car at less than cost.  The 1969 two door hardtop is completely equipped with radio, whitewalls and heavy duty suspension and will be a wonderful car some lucky ticket holder can win.

            Tickets are on sale now at $2.00 each or five for $5.00 from any Kinsman club member.

            City Council has given permission for this car to be parked on Baker Street from now until Sam Steele Days.
