The Fort Erie Underwater Recovery Unit once again held a 50/50 draw with proceeds going to the Lake Erie (Eastern Basin) Mooring Project. A total of $804.00 was raised for the project and three prizes of $402.00 / $241.20 / $160.80 given out. Our thanks to the FEURU for their contribution and effort.
