Games, food, fun for everyone at fair

Thursday afternoon Karonhianónhnha School was host to the Young Adults Program’s (YAP) annual fun fair and was open to the whole community.

“This is one of the events of the community that, from a newborn to an elder, everyone can come to,” said YAP staff worker Allison Lahache.

There were plenty of awesome games for the kids such as ring toss, quarter toss, darts and bingo.

The big surprise was when Playground Poker made a $5,000 donation to the YAP.

“I am ecstatic that they gave such a generous donation, it’s going to go a long way,” said Lahache.

Hungry mouths were waiting in line for delicious hot dogs and hamburgers while Pat’s Pets presented creepy crawlies such as tarantulas and snakes for all to behold.

Dear Readers:

As an essential service that is still open during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Eastern Door is fighting hard to keep news like this flowing, in our print product, though an online subscription at www.eastermdoor.com and here, for free, on our website and Facebook.

But when a large portion of our regular revenue has disappeared due to so many other businesses being closed, our circulation being affected by the same issue, and all of our specials canceled until the end of the year, we are looking for alternative ways to keep operations going, staff paid, and the paper out every Friday for you to enjoy.

Please consider a financial contribution to help us keep doing what we do best; telling the stories of our people in a contemporary medium – a solid, continuing archive that documents our cherished, shared history. Your kind donation will go to a newspaper that stands as the historical record, in-depth, informative and award-winning news; colourful stories, and a big boost to the local economy by employing 95 percent local workers.

Also, please consider subscribing to our e-edition, which comes out Thursday night, at www.easterndoor.com today, or pick up your copy Friday morning in Kahnawake, Kanesatake or Chateauguay. Akwesasne delivery has been suspended due to the pandemic and border issues.

We exercise real freedom of the press every single day. Without our reporters fighting for the truth our community would be missing a whole lot of facts, separated from gossip and rumors.

E-transfers are accepted and very much appreciated at: [email protected]
