Pickles are on sale at Eagle River Secondary in Sicamous for 50 cents each

According to principal Mark Marino, the sale starting Oct. 10 is the brainchild of Grade 8 leadership student Cody Hutchinson.

Marino added that staff members donated pickles for the sale, including some that are home-canned.

According to a poster put up on the Eagle River Secondary Facebook page, pickles are selling for 50 cents each. As an added promotion anyone who buys two pickles receives a free cookie.

“We encourage our kids to be creative and think outside the box,” says Marino.
