To the Editor,
Thank you for your amazing support!! The 20th Annual “Gardens of Uxbridge” Tour was a tremendous success, raising awareness and needed funds for Community Care Durham-Uxbridge. With the financial support we received from our event sponsor, Investors Group, as well as the generosity of the local business community and our volunteers, we were able to cover most of the expenses associated with the day. This means that proceeds from ticket sales can be used to further our work in the community. Our Home Support services allow adults who have needs, related to aging, physical ability and mental health concerns, to remain as active members of their communities.
In total, 310 visitors came out to enjoy the day and support a good cause! Visitors came from as far away as Toronto, Orangeville, Lindsay, and Aurora. Some of our visitors have attended all 20 years and a great many were out for the first time. On average, most people were back for their third or fourth year. The winner of the Early Bird Draw, dinner for two at the Tim Mill Restaurant, was won by Koit and Anne Linkruss of Uxbridge. Winners in our Garden Art Raffle include: Custom Bird House by Wayne Luke Designs: Angela Sciberras, Sparks Will Fly: Eva Stiller, Dog Bite Steel: Catherine Conrad and C. Harding, Wind and Rain fabric sculpture by Trish Webster: Mary Mahon, Stained Glass Garden Art by Rebecca Gower: Louise Ro, Picture by Grace D’andrade: Sharee Mitchell, Papyrus Gift Basket: Joy Freemantle and Wood Sculpture by Frank Ditomaso: anonymous. Thank you to the following supporters of Community Care Durham – Uxbridge’s 2016 Gardens of Uxbridge: Investors Group, Blue Heron Books, Uxbridge,
Branching Out, Port Perry.
