On Wednesday December 3rd, Christopher Dinsdale participated in a Christmas fundraising event for Clearmeadow Public School at Chapters Newmarket. Many books were signed and a good time was had by all. The school council at Clearmeadow P.S. was very appreciative for the effort put into the event. The money raised will go directly into enhancing the academic programs at Clearmeadow P.S..
