Shindig displays Haliburton's finest
To the Editor,
We just came home from a weekend in Haliburton; the timing was planned so that we could attend the Haliburton Shindig on Saturday evening (with friends from the area). We attended last year and were very impressed with Dame Beatrice, Elf and all the local talent. Although we have been to Haliburton many times in the past, this was a very special visit. We were absolutely thrilled with the community “feeling” and support that surrounded this fundraising event for those who need assistance with fuel needs over the winter. To have a full house, to have donations of over $17,000…this was amazing.
However, just as importantly, from my perspective was the community feeling that permeated the evening. I know that people often “retire” to Haliburton County. I am sure they have done their homework and are impressed with the clean air, lovely lakes, starry skies and friendly people. What is not so obvious, until you have experienced it, is this feeling of togetherness, helpfulness and cooperation that filled the auditorium that evening. This is just a sample of what the REAL Haliburton is all about. Well done, County of Haliburton!
