PADDLES AND PUPPETS COMBINE TO FORM NEW EVENT IN ALMONTE 8/10/2018 8:29:35 AM
The puppets are coming back to Almonte on Saturday, August 11th, and they're bringing paddles with them too. Al Roberts, Managing Director of the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation, says it's a winning combination.
Roberts says the puppets are coming from far and wide to participate. The Foundation Director says the day's program is well worth the price of admission. Other activities include a community paddle up the Mississippi, raft racing, local musicians, vendors and food concessions.
Monies raised will support the acquisition and upgrade of diagnostic equipment for the Almonte General Hospital.
