This was the biggest one day event ever for the United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes.
The day began with Col. Hadfield making a quick visit to Community Living. Following this visit, he spoke with students from the two local school boards as well as a local private school. Over 1,600 students, teachers & staff attended these two events. There was also a Meet & Greet for sponsors where guests had a chance to meet Col. Hadfield. This was followed by the event at the Academy Theatre, with over 600 attendees. After the event there was a book signing. The event raised over $40,000. We would like to thank the Three Chairs Committee: Barb Truax, Tim Truax, Sherry Giltenan Truax, Ruth Tait, Pat Twohey and Marlene Wood for their hard work to make this event happen. What a wonderful memory for everyone who had a chance to be a part of this day!
