As I mentioned in an email a few weeks ago this year's fundraiser will take place on Saturday, April 14th which is a bit earlier than usual due to my involvement in Dinner Theatre. I also told you I'd undergone some rigorous training in Europe in preparation for this year's event. Although it was challenging at times ( see photos) it was well worth the effort. Upon returning I did take a few steps backward but lately have regained my peak level of conditioning due mainly to the effort I exert in sitting in my sugar shack watching sap boil. The season thus far has been quite good as I have produced my season average of maple syrup and with two weeks to go and with Mother Nature's cooperation hope to produce a bit more.
The response from sponsors to date has been great, with $1650 already pledged. It's not too late to become a sponsor. Your donation may be left at our local office, mailed to me at Box 105, Buckhorn, ON, K0L 1J0 or given to me directly. Cheques should be made payable to Community Care Peterborough and charitable donation receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more. To those who have already responded, a big thank you
