TOUR COMMENTS

Dear Aida, 

 

Thank you so much for such a lovely night on Monday. It was so wonderful to see the girls so mesmerized by nature and amazing to hear how for so many of them this was their first experience of Sunnyside. I have forwarded the donation information to our treasurer and am attaching our group photo too. Thank you too for the very sweet little owl bags - that was so kind of you and the girls will love using them for the little owls that have sleepovers with the Brownies. We all learned so much from our time with both of you and want to thank you for all the work you do to share the wonders of this beautiful forest in our midst with the community. 

 

Many thanks 

Nicola and the 4th Peninsula

                            TRILLIUM TOUR.

 

 I had such a great time on Saturday at the Trillium tour. I especially was impressed with all of the people I met. Everyone in the heritage society is so friendly and generous with their knowledge. I learned a lot and look forward to learning more at future events. I especially had a wonderful conversation with Marc and look forward to more meetings of the mind and soul.

 

Thank you and cheers Daniel
