Working for good causes
Over the years, IODE Laurentian Chapter has raised money in many different ways - dances, teas, bazaars, the sale of cheese and pies at the Winter Fair. During the First World War, for example, it pioneered a very early recycling program to collect waste paper to raise funds to relieve servicemen. For many years, however, its biggest fund-raiser was an annual Garden Party.
Today the Chapter has a busy and full calendar of fundraising events including:
Our Annual Garage and Bake Sale done in conjunction with the New Edinburgh Community Garage Sale, this happens the third Saturday in September.
The Linden House Theatre Benefit Night at the end of October/early November
The Annual House and Garden Tour in late May or early June.
The Gananoque Bus Tour and Lunch at the 1000 Islands Playhouse
