This year’s Local Flavours event on Sat., Oct. 26 was considered another major success by the Russell Council. The tokens and money raised through the sale of merchant products accumulated a total of $9,892. After vendors were compensated for their work and another donation from the Royal Bank of Canada, this year’s beneficiary, the 5 Cyclone Air Cadets were awarded a total of $9,099.36, the largest amount raised in the four years Local Flavours has been running.
