Volunteer inspiration

I had a vision of a great entertainment end to our volunteer dinner event and thats just what happened!

Kevin Saffar rapped about community connections, keeping the love and our respondibility to help eachother and make a difference. He was awesome and his words really resonated with the youth. The best part was he managed to pull that all tgether in a few hours. Talk about passion and inspiration not only were we delighted, Kevin was extactic to provide!

Thank you everybody, i’m so grateful to your contrubutions, we cannot operate with out YOU!!

Farmers Market

Last Saturday we went to Trout Lake’s Farmers Market.  It was quite a day to

enjoy and sample so many local produce.  Those organic strawberries were so tasty.  Really we are looking for ideas to hold a mini market for the upcoming Fund Raising Event for Seniors which will be held same day as the Harvest Festival at August 31 in Clinton Park.  Please come and have fun with us on the day.

Community Walk

Today we team up with Hastings Community Policing to help clean up the neighbourhood.  When I was picking the garbage by the bus stop, a lady said “thank you”  to me and she really appreciate what we have done.  Thank you to all participants for their good work too.
