The Half Grand Helping Hand recipients for August were nominated by The President of Branch #71 High River Legion (Linda Reed) for their effort to clean up and preserve The RCAF Monument in High River. 

According to Linda Reed, Ethan & Nicole Perkins took it upon themselves to scrape, clean and cut grass to make the Monument shine for all to see. 

Both Ethan and Nicole are in the Cadet program and at 17 (Ethan - Grade 12 at NDC) and 14 (Nicole - in Grade 9 at NDC) are well on their way as model citizens. 

The two received a $500.00 cheque courtesy of sponsor High River AutoPlex & RV, which according to Nicole will be split and put in to each of the teenagers savings accounts.
