Marley Seemans a young girl who set out to raise money for charity 4 years ago, has wrapped up this year's hot chocolate stand from the Tap House in Estevan. With the help of her family and friends, you could have had a hot cup of cocoa all in support of the Estevan Family Resource Centre.

Damyen Seemans, the proud father of Marley, "It went great, it was a little chilly that day to be set up. Quite a few people showed up in support and we raised just about $400.00 for the Family Centre."

Seemans was excited to have raised so much in one day, "There was a lot going on, and with the Christmas season, I know money is tight with everything and a lot of places to donate to. We were happy with that."

With temperatures dropping throughout the day and the wind making it quite cold Seeman had this to say about Marley, "She did great, she's such a trooper, her friend Reagan Veroba came to help and once they showed up, they were eager to help and they loved it when the kids came. It was a great experience and for me, and it's not about how much you raise, its more about the experience."

"It's really great to see people coming together and doing such great things for the community," Seemans sums up.
