Dan-Sharron Moodie Sullivan: “I am very proud to say that I know this family, and am not surprised that they would do this for the community, their hearts are filled with kindness.”

Sean O’Dacre: “I volunteered at the farm this harvest season along with some colleagues and found the experience terrific. Jason is a real workhorse and it’s amazing how much he and his one assistant get done in a year. P.S. they’re always interested to hear from more volunteers.”

Karen Prytula: “What an excellent idea to have the candidates come to the high schools. Even though the majority of students are not eligible to vote, the successful candidate will probably still be in their position when the student does come of age. They will learn that all the good things a political candidate offers is not free… you are merely deciding what you want to pay into when you put your mark on the ballot. I don’t remember the candidates visiting my high school.”

Ruth Richardson (Labyrinth facilitator and youth worker at Stittsville United Church): “Thanks so much for your wonderful photography of the labyrinth at the Peace Park opening ceremonies. I have created many luminary labyrinths over the years and you have captured this creation so beautifully. I love creating them and offering them to the public and the joy and passion you have captures is amazing. The public dancing is so inspiring.”
