"We Believe in Abby" Family Day

We Believe in Abby Family Day

Craig and Becky Eveson know the value of both family and community.

Three years ago, little Abby Eveson was born and her birth started a chain of events. Due to a complicated mixture of four heart conditions, she's spent much of her young life in and out of SickKids Hospital in Toronto. With more surgeries under her belt than anyone would want, and despite her current challenges, Abby's at home and her parents, Craig and Becky have made it their mission to celebrate.

Each year they organise the "We Believe in Abby" Family Day. As Becky puts it:

"How to say thank you to a group of people that have touched our lives in so many different ways? Being able to show our gratitude to those who reached out to us and helped to give us hope and strength, on days when that was hard to find. We hope you can come help us be thankful and to celebrate the gift of time with your children on a fun filled day."
- Becky Eveson

Join us for this FUN, FREE event! Donations to SickKids are greatly appreciated.

Saturday June 24th
11:00 am - 3:00pm
Hickstead Memorial Park, 21 Summit Ridge, Schomberg.

Dufferin Marsh, Swift Night Out

Swift Night Out

Chimney Swifts are small aerial acrobats (similar to barn swallows) who live in hollow trees, and yes, chimneys. A family of swifts can consume as many as 12,000 insects in a single day - many of them mosquitoes! Unfortunately, their numbers are declining, but we have an active population right here in Schomberg.

To learn more about these little birds (and how you can help them in their mosquito eating quest), come to the Grackle Coffee Co (208 Main Street, Schomberg), on Thursday, July 20th at 6:45 p.m.
