A committee raising funds for a handy-van for the R.M. and Town of Morris is nearing its $100 000 goal.

There was a disappointing turn-out at a waffle breakfast fundraiser in Rosenort on Saturday, but Ernie Buhler, Committee Chair, says generally the response has been great.

100 people were at the waffle breakfast in Morris and citizens have been generous to canvassers in Morris, Lowe Farm, and Rosenort.

$75 000 has been raised since June.

The handy-van will replace the old one, owned by the Regional Health Authority, that is no longer road worthy.
