The Merrickville-Wolford Chamber of Commerce, businesses, and Community groups have come together for the “Merrickville-Wolford Stands with Ukraine” initiative. We have wrapped the downtown posts in blue and yellow, and the bridge over the canal will have the same treatment. Flags are flying all over as well.
We are kicking off the initiative on March 20 at the Mainstreet Family Restaurant, and it will last for three weeks. Businesses are doing a variety of fundraising activities from Ukrainian dinners, silent auctions, donating a portion of food sales, Ukrainian egg decorating workshop (all fees being donated), and more to come.
We are also working with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce and will be challenging all Ontario Chambers to start their own initiatives. More details coming in future issues.
