Winning first place were: Sooz Thorn, Michael Gallager, Robin Lunn and Peter Dullard. In second were John Weston, Emma Dobelle, Andy Wunch and Daphne Baraczka and in third place were: Pat Dye, Pam Noxon, Ann Adams and Paul Adams .
“It was so nice of the Mission & Service Committee of Picton United Church to host this fun community event,” said Hospice Prince Edward Executive Director Nancy Parks. “The event raised $2278.86 and one hundred per cent of the funds raised will go a long way to support the service that hospice volunteers provide to our community.”
