There’s something new happening this year at the Barry’s Bay Tim Hortons! That’s right, Smile Cookie Week is taking place on May 1 to 7. Previously held in the fall, Smile Cookie Week is relaunching with a new date. One hundred per cent of the proceeds from the sale of $1.50 cookies will go to the St. Francis Valley Healthcare Foundation (SFVHF) for local healthcare needs. The Foundation raises funds for its local healthcare partners, including the Valley Manor, Madawaska Valley Hospice Palliative Care (MVHPC) and St. Francis Memorial Hospital (SFMH). The goal is to raise $7,500.
