The Haliburton Lions Enchanted Forest Service Project Blog June 27th

Delivery Day! Oh what fun it has been to collect and purchase items for the Enchanted Forest at Abbey Garden; that as you probably know, was the victim of vandalism last fall. We have completed our commitment of outfitting The Bog Bakery Café and The Theatre in the Woods and also collected a few additional items for The Nest and Harmony Hollow. Thank you to all who have contributed and made this project such a success! It really is fun to be a Haliburton Lion!

It has been so much fun that we don’t want to stop. Many more items are needed and now I have a new list for all of us to work on. And, by all of us, I mean you too! What an amazing community that steps up to support our service projects and this incredible children’s outdoor play area.

First, here are the items we delivered on Friday, June 26th with pictures of happy Haliburton Lions: Betty and David Mills, Tina and Gerald Hadley, Marilyn Frost and Braid Tait and me, Gail Stelter; and, of course, Abbey Gardens CEO, Heather Reid and Education Coordinator, Irene Heaven.
