The fundraising totals are in and the annual Jaffray Firefighters' Bonspiel raised almost $5,000.

“This was an awesome year,” said Jaffray Baynes Lake Fire Chief Dave Boreen. “The $5,000 is just the firefighter portion and does not include revenue raised by other groups involved, like the 4H Club.”

Fourteen teams competed in the Bonspiel and the winners were as follows:

A Event - Cupidio Rink - Anthony Cupidio, Matt Filatoff, Tyler Shedden, and Paul MacDonald.

B Event - Tracey Rink – Barry Tracey, Dave Boreen, Donna Warkentin, and Willy Rayman.

C Event - Laird Rink – Grant Laird, Lorne Rathgeber, Steve Ebbern, and Art Ingram.

“I would like to thank the Jaffray Volunteer Fire Department Society for their work running the concession and feeding both the curlers and public, the 4H Club for catering the dinner, the participants and the many businesses and individuals who donated and supported the Bonspiel,” added Boreen. “This event would not be what it is without the support of the community and it truly was a banner year for us.”

The funds raised will be used by the Fire Department to purchase much needed rescue and firefighting equipment
