Pickles: The favoured fundraising product for Sicamous students

According to principal Mark Marino, the sale starting on Oct. 10 is the brainchild of Grade 8 leadership student Cody Hutchinson.

Marino added that staff members donated pickles for the sale, including some that are home-canned.

According to a poster put up on the Eagle River Secondary Facebook page, pickles are selling for 50 cents each. As an added promotion anyone who buys two pickles receives a cookie for free.

“We encourage our kids to be creative and think outside the box,” Marino said.
