John Court, a member of the Highlands Masonic Lodge, made a decision to provide a generous $500 donation to the St. Paul’s Community Garden in Winchester.

After providing 62 years of service, John says he was happy to make sure the money went to a good cause. Several times a year, the Highlands Lodge in Maxville chooses a community organization or service to donate to. This time, the St. Paul’s Community Garden was lucky enough to be chosen.

Volunteers from the community garden along, with Jane Schoones from the Community Food Share program, happily accepted the cheque on Wednesday, July 6. Jane remarked that the food share program relies on fresh food from the garden and this donation is very much appreciated.
