A Carol for Hospice


The days are shorter, the nights are cooler and the volunteers at the Beth Donovan Hospice are busy preparing for “A Carol for Hospice”, their major fundraiser set for December 7. The plans are well underway for the dramatic presentation of “Dickens A Christmas Carol”. Readers have been chosen, parts assigned, and rehearsals are underway.

Meanwhile, a dedicated group of volunteers are busy canning, preserving, and decorating in preparation for the “Pop-Up” Christmas Market which will be held at the event. Jams, chutneys, and other preserves will be available, along with Christmas Cakes and pudding, delicious shortbreads, ginger cookies and other fine baking delights. Look for hand crafted wooden gifts, and beautiful Christmas décor.

Again this year, Mill Street Florist will be providing stunning floral decorations. Our decorating committee will be turning “Parish Hall” into a beautiful Victorian Christmas wonderland. We are also very happy to have “Catered Affairs” on board, providing gourmet treats for a pre-show cocktail party.

Be sure to look for Christmas trees, decorated by local businesses in late November. The trees will be located at RBC Kemptville, @ Dentistry, RONA, To Be Continued, North Grenville Public Library, and Beth Donovan Hospice. Raffle tickets will be available at the end of November.

Tickets to attend the event will be on sale starting October 15, through the Hospice. The cost is $25 per person.
