The Concordia Volunteers
Used Book Fair raised $6,079, thanks to the efforts of an army of people
led by Barbara Barclay, Susan Hawke and Helen Eng. Thanks should also
go to Ken Bissonnette, from the Bookstore, for helping to organize cash
The sale took place over two days on the mezzanine, and was always busy.
All proceeds are donated to Campus Ministrys Student Emergency Food
Fund to provide short-term emergency assistance to students.
The organizers want to thank everyone who donated books by the
thousands. Those that were left over from the sale are being resorted,
packed, sent to schools and vendors outside the city, or kept over for
next years sale.
Golfing for Massimo
Bookstore employees John Fiorilli and Ken Bissonnette would like to thank
Sylvie Lacelle, manager of Sodexho-Marriott at Concordia, for providing
refreshments at the second annual Massimo Fiorilli Golf Tournament. They
would also like to thank their union, CUSSU, for a contribution.
The tournament raised $12,000 to provide Massimo Fiorilli, who is Johns
son and Kens nephew, with treatments that are not covered by medicare.
Massimo, who is nine years old, was born healthy, but at the age of four
developed a medical problem that so far defies diagnosis. Breathing pure
oxygen in a hyperbaric chamber seems to relieve his symptoms. Quebec does
not have these facilities, and so Massimo has been taken several times
to Ottawa and Vancouver for the therapy.
