Letter to Garth Trails
This is just a friendly reminder to residents that when they see children who
are cycling or walking through our community they are not necessarily
On Tuesday, April 13th our 2 grandsons aged 12 and 10 years were cycling
home after having a social distancing lunch with us when they were
confronted by a female resident who told them they were trespassing, they
shouldn’t be here and to leave, even though they indicated they were
visiting their grandparents.
When speaking with them afterwards, our one grandson was very gracious
and said “maybe the lady was having a bad day”, now my question to the
lady is this ‘when you next see these two young boys will you be just as
gracious and apologize for your error in judgement’, because you will see
them again as they will still cycle or walk past your house when they visit.

Wanted: Donations for Community Outreach Charity Trunk Drive
Hello Garth Trails Residents!
While you are engaging in spring cleaning your closets and drawers during the current "stay at home" order, I am asking you to keep several organizations in mind. The Retired Women Teachers of Ontario, Hamilton Wentworth Branch has organized a RWTO Community Outreach Charity Drive Thru on May 12th, from 10:00 to 2:00 in the Ancaster Sobey's Parking Lot. Our members collect items for a variety of charities and are inviting the public to join in. This will be contactless, as multiple vehicles will be parked in a row with their trunks open and signage to show which donations are to be placed in which trunks. Just drop off in the correct "car boots" and each volunteer will drive the donations to the charity drop off point late that afternoon.
If you only have a few shoes or purses to donate and do not plan to drive to Sobey's on Wed., May 12th, I will be placing a few boxes on my porch during the weekend of May 9th and 10th., but just for the "Purses for Margaret" project and the Soles 4 Souls project and eyeglass or hearing aid donations. I will not have room in my vehicle for N2N donations that day! Enjoy reading more info about these projects below!
Thank you for joining us for this charity drive!
