2 FOCUS - JUNE 2018 Want to be part of the Port Perry House Tour? Dear Editor The Port Perry and Prince Albert United Church Outreach Committee is currently planning this year’s Town and Country House Tour for Saturday September 22. This is a charitable event with the proceeds supporting the following local charities: Big Brothers Big Sisters of North Durham, Community Care Durham, Joanne’s House, North House and YWCA Durham and Second Stage Housing For Women. This year marks the 10th Anniversary of this tour and has raised over $100,000 to date. If you are interested in participating in this wonderful fundraiser, we are looking for homes in the area of varied and interesting architecture, interior design and decor. Houses can be large or small, new or old, in town or the surrounding area. Please consider putting your home or garden on the 2018 tour and help these valuable charities in our community. Refer to our website for further details – www.portperryhousetour.ca Sincerely Shelley Bertrim, Committee member PPHT Rotary Club of Port Perry – Spring Gala Dear Editor Many thanks to everyone who supported the Rotary Club’s Annual Spring Gala on Saturday April 21 at Royal Ashburn Golf Club – to the 225 attendees, to all the generous individuals and local businesses for their donations and to the members of the Rotary Club and their partners. The evening was a great success raising over $38,000. This money will enable the club to meet its final installment of its commitment of $150,000 to the Oak Ridges Hospice of Durham. In addition, the funds will help the club continue all its good work in the community. The next big event for the club will be the 3rd Annual Ribfest to be held on July 27, 28 and 29. Hope to see you there! Joanne Fowler, Rotary Gala Chairperson Greenbank Folk Music Society sends along thanks Dear Editor Mogens and I, and all the folks that volunteer with the Greenbank Folk Music Society, would like to express our sincere thanks for all that you do for us through your Focus on Scugog publication. As we end our 25th year of presenting this concert series, it was wonderful to see the article in last month’s Focus (May 2018). Your help in getting the word out to the community is part of why we are still here. We – along with all residents of Scugog – are fortunate to have this quality community magazine come to our doorsteps each month. With thanks again, Mogens and Cathy Galberg BIG Shout Out Dear Editor We would like to give a big shout out to the staff, students and parents at S.A. Cawker P.S. for the amazing show, “The Lion King”. Everything from the music, costumes, stage set, actors, choir, lighting and choreography was absolutely top quality and very entertaining. These performances could not happen without the dedication of staff, students and parents who volunteer their time for costume making, rehearsals, set preparations etc… All the people from Community Living Durham North that attended the play really enjoyed it. The productions at S.A. Cawker are always an event that people we support look forward to. We look forward to seeing the next play they perform in the future. Thank you all for the great show!!!!
