RIVER HEBERT-It didn`t take very long for the River Hebert, Joggins & Area Development Asssoication to make good on one of its promises by reinvesting some of the profits it made from the 1st Annual Minudie Music Festival back into the community.
The Development Association, which cleared just over $1,800.00 from the first annual musical event, donated $1,000.00 on Sunday night to the River Hebert Schools' Backpack campaign that provides money to students who can't otherwise afford such school supplies as backpacks, pens and pencils.
