Green Wood was presented with the Community Builder Award by Northumberland United Way at their recent Annual General Meeting. We were nominated by the Municipality of Port Hope for this award that recognizes the positive contribution of the Green Wood Community to life in Port and surrounding area. It was very gratifying for GWC Chair, Jeff Knott and Outreach Worker, David Sheffield to accept the award on behalf of more than 100 volunteers who earned this recognition. Presentation was made by Lynda Kay, Executive Director of NUW.
After losing the use of St. Mary’s School when it was sold in March, our Community Dinner has been on hold while we searched for a new location for the weekly gathering that has served delicious food for more than 6 years. We are happy to report that we’ll be resuming the popular meal on Mondays at 6 PM at the Ruth Clarke Activity Centre on Mill St. S. (between the train trestles). This venue is owned by the Municipality of Port Hope, is fully accessible, and has a great kitchen facility.
These meals are provided by a roster of local church groups and are attended by 70-80 people looking for a good meal and some social interaction.
Day or night, the streets of small town Ontario are full of stories. Here we caught Nicole (our student intern) and Tim in the middle of a good one, in downtown Port Hope.
