Pickles: The favoured fundraising product for Shuswap students

Pickles are on sale at Eagle River Secondary in Sicamous for 50 cents each

The Eagle River Secondary leadership class in Sicamous is holding a novel fundraiser to save more money for school activities. While most school groups in need of filling their coffers put on car washes and bake sales, at ERS the product on offer is pickles.

According to principal Mark Marino, the sale starting Oct. 10 is the brainchild of Grade 8 leadership student Cody Hutchinson.

Marino added that staff members donated pickles for the sale, including some that are home-canned.

According to a poster put up on the Eagle River Secondary Facebook page, pickles are selling for 50 cents each. As an added promotion anyone who buys two pickles receives a free cookie.

“We encourage our kids to be creative and think outside the box,” says Marino.
