As part of the Christmas spirit, a few members from Georgian Lakelands Chapter took the opportunity to give thanks for their prosperity by donating turkeys and hams to the Elizabeth Fry Society in Barrie. Participants Lexi Dearborn from A. Dearborn designs, Ross and Sheila Allin from Creative Gardens and Waterscapes, Jeff Lee from Lee’s Landscaping and Warren Patterson from Botanix took part. It was quite a humbling experience for those who participated. They quickly learned that this small food bank, which receives no extra funding, plays a very important part in the Barrie community. “We were grateful for the opportunity to help out and our donations were truly appreciated,” said Lexi Dearborn.
