We celebrate a successful Spring Fundraiser Dinner - the Fundango on April 1st at the Georgian House.  The food was fabulous; the music best quality; and the company was grand. A total of $1606 was raised through the event from the dinner and a draw. The winner of the 50/50 donated her prize money back to the FGTA.  Huge gratitude!

April 23 Trail Conditions - Helen McCuaig says "The Green Road has flooded areas that are impassable . The Green Road between county RD 45 (Kenyon Dam Rd) and Marcoux Rd has wet spots but all are passable. Garry Fen also has wet spots but one can find a way around them. I was able to navigate Garry Fen without getting wet feet."
