It's time for the Kiwanis Club of Georgetown's annual Harvestfest on Friday, Nov. 10. Every year, Kiwanis members help local groups raise funds for their projects, particularly projects that involve children. All of the money goes back into Halton Hills. Harvestfest will be held at Holy Cross Church Hall. Tickets are $50 per person, which includes a wine tasting event to start off the evening, a hip of beef buffet buffet, plus a silent auction, live auction and dancing. This year the Harvestfest proceeds will be shared with Hope Place Centres. Hope Place consists of three programs-- one centre for recovery from addictions for women (located in Halton Hills on Hwy 25), one centre for recovery from addictions for men (located in Halton Hills on Trafalgar Rd.), and a program called Babies Best Beginnings, which assists young mothers and babies run out of Burlington, but there are many local clients using this service. Hope Place plans to move the Babies Best Beginnings to Halton Hills in future, if they can raise enough money to do so. Besides Hope Place Centres, The Kiwanis Club continues to raise funds for the emergency room renovation at the Georgetown Hospital. The Kiwanis club pledged $30,000 for this project over three years. Thanks to Kiwanis, the hospital's ER area recently received new seating, new wall coverings, and new tile flooring. The children's play area will also be updated as part of this project. Harvestfest tickets are selling fast, so call 905-877-4411 ext. 253 to book yours.
