Each participant must also submit a post-dated cheque for $320.00 for their participation service commitment of 10 hours per year (Spring and Fall).  Once the 10 participant service commitment hours are completed, the post-dated cheque is returned. LBTRA hosts a number of fund-raising events throughout the year at which these service hours can be satisfied.
