Events for Life Presents Pallet Canada Flag to Town as a Thank You for Support

16/06/17
You Can Order Your Flag Today!

Events for Life Centre Inc., is a federally registered charity operating fee-based day programming for individuals with special needs who live in the communities of Thornbury, Meaford, Owen Sound, Collingwood and outlying areas. 

Shelley Higginson is the founder of the program, and has been very surprised by the overwhelming response to the wooden pallet flags her group has produced as one of their fundraisers. They sold out of the first 32 they made, then made 43 more and sold out, and had to get additional materials to make another 55!

Two of the program's participants came with Shelley to present the flag to the Town. Lucky staff who had ordered early also received their flags that day. Clearly the #canda150 spirit is alive and well in Town of The Blue Mountains. 

Councilor Martin accepted the flag with great appreciation, along with a heartfelt thank you card from the Events for Life participants. 

If you would like your own flag, maple leaf or one of their other wooden crafts, you may contact Shelley at:

eventsforlifethornbury@gmail.com

You may also contact her through the Events for Life Facebook page.

Flags like those you see in the photo are $20 for the regular flag and $30 for an extra heavy stand-alone version. The small maple leaves are only $5. Quantities, as they say, are very limited. 

We want to thank Events for Life for their generous gift, and wish them much success with their fundraiser.
