Following their third annual Revelstoke Women’s Mega Clothing swap, organizer Lexie Ast presented a cheque for $1,352.35 to the Farwell Splash Park Society Wednesday in front of City Hall.

The event, which took place Saturday, May 5 at the Revelstoke Community Centre, donated their total proceeds to the Farwell Splash Park Society, that hopes to have a finished park by the summer of 2019.

Pat Mckee, who is heading the initiative to construct the splash park at the location of the former wading pool, accepted the cheque on behalf of the society along with treasurer Barb Byman.
