The annual Kwalikum Secondary Christmas tree and bottle drive was a record success, bringing in over $2,000.

Karen Katchur, one of the parent organizers, said they are very thankful to everyone involved from the large number of grads who participated, the ongoing Town of Qualicum Beach support and helpful parents, grandparents and bottle depot staff.

She thanked the resident’s who’s donations, including cash donations and bottles, helped the 2012 grad class raised $2,131.

Bottle depot staff said it was a record-breaking bottle drive.

The KSS Dry Grad account will remain open to donations.

The KSS grad class has ongoing fundraisers including Quality Foods cards — that need to be arranged through Jeanna at  djkyle@shaw.ca  — while anyone can ask the cashier to donate their points to grad.
