This year, CanoeFM celebrated 20 years along with their annual radiothon from July 7-9.

CanoeFM had a full schedule of events last weekend. Community members were able to bid on surprise pop-up auction items along with an online auction.

Station manager, Roxanne Casey, said they had raised $55,175 as of July 11. “The volunteers have worked very hard over the last 20 years to create a radio station that belongs to the people of Haliburton County. I applaud volunteers past and present who bring their passion and personalities into the station to provide this incredible service of community radio to listeners far and wide,” said Casey.

They encouraged people to come into the station and see the action live. All donations were entered into a draw to win one of five $100 gift cards to Haliburton Foodland. Anyone who made a donation of $100 or more received a limited edition 20th anniversary CanoeFM T-shirt.

The radiothon was presented by Minden Subaru and sponsored by NOMI Resort Club and Minden & Haliburton Home Hardware & Building Centres.
