The annual Turkey Shoot brought a good crowd out to the North Arm Pub to try their hand at darts. The goal was to win Thanksgiving dinner.

Fifteen turkeys were up for grabs as well as various other prizes. The fundraiser was held on Sunday Oct. 4 from 11-4pm. After paying $10, participants threw darts in hopes of bringing a bird home.

All proceeds support the Stuart Lake Hospital Auxiliary. Julie-Ann Mortenson, president of the auxiliary, said that the event was held at the Royal Canadian Legion in previous years but it has since closed. “This is a new venue but the pub has really accommodated us this year,” Mortenson said.

The auxiliary raises funds to make and supply equipment for the hospital. “It’s all about patient care and comfort, that’s our mission,” Mortenson said.

The 25 member auxiliary also looks after the gardens, supplies bursaries at the high school and has recently purchased a bus for seniors.

“The event was a success today,” Mortenson said. “We were a little unsure because of it being held in a new venue but it was a good turnout,” she said.
