Wanda Laurin is offering to collect and sort bottles on an ongoing basis

with proceeds to go to the roof restoration project. Wanda will pick up

your bottles (phone her with your address, 624-2751) OR you can drop

them at her house (7418 98A street in the back alley parking area) OR you

can take them to the bottle depot and designate that they are for St. James

(this is the least profitable option, as the bottle depot will take a percentage 

for sorting)
