Do you hate having to take back your liquor bottles and cans? If so, David of "Many Happy Returns" would love to take them off your hands! He is a very generous young man who collects LCBO and Beer Store returns for charity. Every time he reaches $100 he gives a cheque to a charity of his choice. As you can see, the LHS was lucky enough to be his charity pick at the end of April. If you're interested in using David's services, please check out his Facebook page here
REMINEDER! Quinte Bluegrass: Sweet Music for Loyalist Humane Society Cats.
From May 27-29, 2016, Quinte’s Isle Campark will echo to the melody of all-Canadian Bluegrass music as bands from near and far come together in their eight annual celebration. The event will feature popular groups such as Dusty Drifters, Shine, Switchback Rd, Concession 23, Sweetgrass, and County Rd 44 among others. This family-friendly event has grown in popularity from year to year, with more and more campers and other visitors coming to sample County hospitality.
This year again, the Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass Celebration has chosen to donate the proceeds from their popular May 28 silent auction to the Loyalist Humane Society. The Loyalist Humane Society (LHS) is a non-profit charitable organization located in Prince Edward County, on County Road 4 west of Picton. The LHS provides care for animals without homes. While their ultimate goal is to find each pet a new and loving Forever Home, they are a no-kill shelter with a big enough heart to keep un-adopted pets in a loving environment over their lifetimes. The LHS receives no government funding and relies solely on its valued volunteers, generous community support, and the kindness of organizations such as the Quinte’s Isle Bluegrass Celebration.
We hope all music-lovers will come out to enjoy the Celebration, welcome the musicians and their out-of-town fans, and support the silent auction. LHS cats love mewsic!
