Please submit two or three sentences to a maximum of 125 words to: focus@focusonscugog.com THUMBS Note – we sometimes receive Thumbs Down to local businesses for a variety of reasons. We appreciate our businesses as they not only pay taxes, but support sports teams and donate to charities of all kinds, so we choose not to publish their names. If you have an issue with a business owner, we urge you to speak with them directly, rather than use this column. THUMBS UP - to the McKay guys, Jordan and Alex of Willowtree Farm. They were chosen as National Winners from seven regional farmers at Canada’s Outstanding Young Farmer (OYF) Program’s national event held in Winnipeg Manitoba in December 2018. Way to go guys! Watch a future issue of Focus on Scugog for more on this award. THUMBS UP - to our Port Perry Hospital Auxiliary for the generous donation of over $300,000 to Lakeridge Health! The ladies in the coral smocks sure work hard and exceed at everything they do. We are lucky to have them. THUMBS UP - and speaking of donations, how about Ron and Nancy Compton? In 2011, they sold Compton Communications and since then have invested over one million back into our community and surrounding area. Thanks Ron and Nancy, Scugog is fortunate to have such wonderful residents. THUMBS UP - A reader had attended the Santa Claus parade and loved it, but also had a THUMBS DOWN to the pot smell that was continuous. Her high was from watching her grandchildren enjoy the parade and she commented, “this is not a rock concert’. Absolutely no reflection on any of the organizers, volunteers or participants, but sad to think this is just the beginning of what is still to come! THUMBS DOWN - to the prolonged idling of vehicles to warm them up in cold weather. This contributes more damage to our environment and to your vehicle’s engine. Think about our individual carbon footprint, it may help to save our planet. THUMBS UP - to Scugog! Thanks to absolutely everyone who gave to Operation Scugog, i.e. for families in need, toys, food, hoodies and so much more! This community is awesome!
