Andrew Harwood Boys and Girls Club of Niagara – $200,000 Renovations to 20 Lewis St, Fort Erie, ON a Dollar well spent!

the idea girl says

I could smell the new paint and carpet as I walked in the doors of 20 Lewis St. What I didn’t know is that it was a recent renovation thanks to the kindness of those of you who gave towards the $200,000 it cost to do it!

The Boys and Girls Club of Niagara have a new play area inside and out thanks to all of you. And we are going to continue to assist them with our Fundraising ideas to develop awesome programs, camp and fun activities for our kiddies here in Fort Erie Ontario Canada.

YOu can help by donating your dollars at the Fort Erie Friendship FEstival! (on the NIagara Blvd (Canadian Side) by the Peace Bridge – Buffalo NY, USA)

They will be there Sat, Sun and Monday from June 28 – June 30th, 2014 in the children’s activity area creating GREAT BIG HUMONGOUS BUBBLES? 🙂

I wonder what they look like? Come out and see… 😉

we took a pic of Andrew and it will be up soon!

I had a meeting with Andrew Harwood and Harry about our KUBB fundraising event at the Fort Erie Friendship Festival for Monday June 30th, 2014 at 1 PM EDT. Andrew has informed us he cannot have his volunteers there for the Tues game on July 1, 2014 at 1 pm edt. So we will only be doing the “fundraising” for them on the Monday.

We also talked and introduced ourselves to Flo who is organizing the main event and she showed me on the map where our game “tent” will be located. It’s by the Queen St Entrance, and on the left part of the Maher Circle behind the stage where the music concerts are, and close to the art vendors and food vendors.

Andrew is planning to make up posters and send out an invitation to all the boys and girls club of niagara families to set up a friendly competition between family vs family for their group. We will be enlisting passerby’s and tourists to join in the game too, to learn to play (takes 5 minutes to figure out how to do it) and have some fun, taking turns.

Andrew’s also contacted KUBB Canada asking about getting a free playing kit for his group, and I’ve contacted Beck Sports on Amazon for our free kit. I know there’s other options for his group because it’s for kids and educational, so I’m going to look it up and apply for them that way as well.

I advised him KUBB Canada charges $85 for a kit, and Beck Sports sells them on Amazon for $65 (I didn’t read to see if that’s in USA dollars. 😉 )

I’ll keep you posted! Andrew’s also going to make up a 100 extra flyers for us to distribute in and around to the different locations in the NIagara Region for this fun event!
