Both girls are in Grade 5 at Holy Name of Mary in Almonte. This was part of a class project of giving back to the community. Thanks so much girls!


Dave and Cathy Lindstedt Animal lovers Dave and Cathy Lindstedt helped launch the New Digs for LAWS capital campaign with a $5,000 donation at this year's 'Walk Your Paws for LAWS' Event. A further $5,000 which was raised that day, has helped launch LAWS on the road to its goal of $525,000 for the campaign.
