To the Editor,
Kudos to the Haliburton village farmers’ market for responding to a request for assistance for a senior. This week I was greeted by a vendor whose Grade 9 son would be earning his volunteer hours helping to carry shopping throughout the market, and to the parking lot. Given the parking problems, and the distance sometimes involved, this is a great help.
I mentioned this personal need to the vendor last week (sunglasses, purse, wallet, cane, poor balance, etc. are now a challenge) and this week the need was met. This excellent service will be available until September. Ask at the farmers’ market booth if you aren’t approached.
Congratulations to retailers who rush to meet a need. Thank you.
