Community Online First

STELLARTON – Going into it’s 12th year, Trinity Energy Group is ready to celebrate with their annual open house event on Friday from 10 a.m, to 2 p.m. All members of the community are welcome to attend for a free barbecue, giveaways, contractor specials, children’s activities and presentation of a $1,000 cheque to Corbin MacDonald, 11.

In 2012, MacDonald was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a rare genetic disease that affects the motor nervous system. SMA hinders or sometimes takes away the ability to walk, eat and breathe. There are three classifications of the disease; where MacDonald is type lll, he still has the ability to walk and do some things on his own. However, he needs assistance to complete most physical tasks such as climbing stairs and moving from a sitting position.

“Trinity Energy Group is elated to present young Corbin with a cheque that will assist in his mobility,” says Rodney Misener, vice-president of Operations. “The funds will be used to help Corbin purchase a special wheelchair to help him move a little more comfortably and essentially help to shape his independence.”

There will be something for everyone at the open house. Anyone is welcome to join in on the fun featuring one-day specials, giveaways, free barbecue, demonstrations, bouncy castle, glitter tattoos and more.
