At a recent membership meeting, the Cabin Point Civic Association (CPCA) elected to donate $750 worth of various supplies to Cople Elementary school. The action was a spinoff of an annual campaign sponsored by Jane Herron, a former teacher.

Janice Fletcher and Barbara Cupples of the CPCA met with the Cople Elementary principal and decided upon the items to be provided.

The variety included: spiral notebooks, broad tip markers, glue sticks, composition notebooks, fine tip markers, Fun tak display tabs, loose leaf paper, dry erase markers, pencil-top erasers. construction paper, pencils, Post-it notes, 30 boxes of tissues, 50 bottles of hand sanitizer, 24 containers of Clorox wipes, 12 boxes each of sandwich size zip-lock and gallon size zip-lock bags.

Marion Dongieux, on behalf of the CPCA Board of Directors said, “The generosity of the people of Cabin Point and Glebe Harbor is a testament to the spirit of educational support within the communities.”
