Local youth activities disrespect Corrib..
Why would local sport teams schedule games for the first Sunday in June, when the Corrib has its annual fundraiser? The Corrib raised $75,000 during its fundraiser last year, all which went back into community sports and activities. Personally I know the learn to skate program received $10,000 making the cost of skating just $200. Without the help of the Corrib many of the programs in WR would not be feasible. The Corrib donates to every cause in WR. Whether it is a sport or the need for a playground or books the Corrib is always the first to make it happen. Would it not make sense to not schedule games and activities for the first Sunday, so everyone can participate in raising the most money possible?
