“Services such as law enforcement and libraries benefit each and every citizen of Lunenburg now, and for years to come,” said CFS Area President Rob Guidry. “This donation has been part of our company culture for seven years, and we’ve donated $300,000 back into the Lunenburg County community — a commitment of which we are very proud.”

These donations will help upgrade technology and education programs, staff development, and equipment for each entity.
