Donation made to local school in spite of Covid-19 school closures

Despite a school cessation due to Covid-19, Saugeen District Senior School (SDSS) has been the recipient of a donation in anticipation of when school returns.

The Southport Horticultural Society decided to support the SDSS Playscape program because their team, led by Karen Fehr, demonstrated to that there was not only a goal of visual improvement to their outdoor space but there were also practical needs.

“We therefore felt that providing a table for students to use would be a great first step to enhancing this area,” says Sandra Carter of the Horticultural Society. ” The table we provided was purchased from a local Grey/Bruce business. The table deck and seats are perforated steel powder-coated with a powder-coated frame as well.  It is of very sturdy construction to withstand years of use by many students and what Mother Nature has to offer.”






The next step for the Southport Horticultural Society is to help with visual and environmental improvements in the form of plants and trees.  “We look forward to being able to play a further role in this project,” added Carter.

According to Carter, the project was possible through the continued support of current members renewing their $10.00 memberships – and new members joining the Society, a yearly grant from the County of Bruce and the generous support of the entire community for fundraisers that are held at select times throughout the year.

“We wish to thank everyone who has supported the Southport Horticultural Society!  We can only continue to be part of these projects with the support of our awesome community,” adds Carter.
