The Haliburton Lions Enchanted Forest Service Project Blog July 8th
I was over at The Enchanted Forest in Abbey Gardens this week and it is just so special. I can hardly wait for it to once again be open to children and families. COVID-19 is preventing this for the time being but the good news is that we now have more time to gather, purchase, and engage our Lions and our community to help us to outfit this wonderful play area.
My list is pretty much the same as my last update so we need to get moving on the following items for the Loose Play Area:
· Construction tools – child size – wood or plastic
· Garden Tools – child size – wood or plastic or metal
· Durable Tonka Construction Toys / Vehicles
And, let’s add a couple more:
· 4 to 6 milk crates
· Small / crushed white stone – This stone will be used to line the path to the Fairy Garden and also at the Wishing Well. I think we may need some community partners / local businesses / individual donations to help with this one. Perhaps we can pay or partially pay for the stone and a donation could be free delivery. We are thinking that three to four tons of white stone would do it. Yes, it’s a big item but we are so positive that, with your help, it too will become a “done deal”!
Every now and then, we are presented with the opportunity to right a wrong. After vandalism took its toll at The Enchanted Forest last fall, we were given this opportunity and we all are enjoying this Lions service project! Please continue to contact me if you can help: Lion Gail at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone / text 705 455 2772.
