Generations Foundation: Fresh start is many things to many people

GENERATION In Old Montreal 038Spring officially began in March, but spring renewal occurs after rain showers have washed away the remnants of snow and debris on the streets and sidewalks. It is refreshing to see greens sprouting, with a promise of lovely flowers and trees dotting nature’s landscape.

Days are longer and we can warm our body and soul under more sun than we have had all winter long. Relish the freshness of the present, because we will barely have the opportunity to sew the missing button on our spring jacket before we’ll be complaining about a heat wave.

Generations Foundation’s fundraising season is heating up, too.

Sign up to run with Mary’s team in the 2014 Scotiabank Charity Challenge on Sunday, April 27, at Jean Drapeau Park.

April 30, Generations Foundation Theatre Evening at the Segal features Top Girls and tickets are selling like hotcakes. Call Adrian at 514-933-8585 to reserve your seats or be a sponsor.

May 30, a ritzy gala at the Hyatt Regency to raise funds for our food programs will usher in an early summer, when we gather to pay tribute to the children. Learning programs are loaded into new laptops for 10 promising students at spring graduation ceremonies. Registration is underway to send hundreds of youngsters to sleepovers at camp in the countryside, where they will enjoy nature’s bounty and return to school in the fall with vim and vigour.
