This was recently in the news... we are so sad to hear of the damage to the playground surface we worked so hard to have installed! You can help us to finish the surface by purchasing your ticket for our Honda Car Raffle at http://www.rotarygeorgetown-on.ca/Stories/win-this-car-build-a-local-playground

Saturday, June 21
Firefighters responded to the report of a fire in the area of Guelph St. and Maple Ave. at the Dominion Gardens play area at 2:13 a.m. Upon arrival on scene crews located a small pile of clothing burning in the play area. The fire was on the cork of the playground and was an area of approximately 2 feet by 2 feet and had damaged the cork under the clothing. Crews extinguished the fire and then removed the burned clothing to the parking area and added more water to ensure the clothing was out. http://www.theifp.ca/news/fire-calls-2/
 

 
 
Anna, our Estonian exchange student, is heading back to Estonia next week after a successful year in Canada.  We will miss you Anna!

Come out to see us at Canada Day in Glen Williams.  We'll be in the parade with 2 entries - for the Car Raffle and for Hope in High Heels.  We'll also be selling our famous Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches to support the food bank!
 
Watch for our float in the Canada Day Parade in Glen Williams. You still have time to register for 'Hope in High Heels' a (really short) walk to support Halton Women's Place. Don't like to walk in high heels? Just sponsor someone to support the shelter.
