Rick Mercer’s CBC TV show came to Almonte recently to recognize Almonte and District High School as the nation-wide high school winners of his “Spead the Net” campaign.

The segment aired April 2 on CBC television, and featured Mercer in amusing scenes with students and teachers throughout the school.

Mercer said of the school’s winning effort, “They were a dark horse right from the beginning, with just under 600 students. Proving once again that when it comes to generosity, size does not matter.”

As they so often do, the young people of Almonte have done us all proud again. Congratulations to everyone who made this happen.
