LNG Canada held a special event for Canada Day in the Riverlodge Gym: ‘Can-Struction.’ Different contractors built statues out of food items which graced the gym. There were eight entrants.
“It’s an opportunity for people to build all these wonderful statues and exhibits out of food items that then go to the food bank,” said Suzanna Piers. “It came about in recognising some of the needs in the community and trying to do something fun and creative and innovative. We thought this would be a first great shot at it.”
Over $5000 worth of food was raised for the food bank. There were two categories for the statues, two feet and four feet. Judges made their decisions based on the best meal, healthy food choices, structural integrity, and their best overall choice.
Piers hoped to have a bigger turn out for Canada Day, 2016. The winners are printed below.
The categories and their corresponding winners for the under two feet category are:
- Best Meal: Lapointe Engineering Ltd.
- Healthy Foods: Lapointe Engineering Ltd.
- Judge's Choice: Civeo
- Structural Integrity: Civeo
- Honourable Mention: First Line Security and Daudet Creek Contracting
The categories and their corresponding winners for two to four feet in height are:
- Best Meal: Steeple Jack
- Healthy Foods: Steeple Jack
