HELP SUPPORT THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY!

I have started an initiative to help out the Neville-Lake Family!
What you do is buy a magnet (with a picture of the children) stating “DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE” and “NOT ONE MORE” and place it on the back of your car!

$1 of every purchase goes to MADD CANADA
The purpose of this:
• To remember Daniel, Harry, and Milly
• Announce to everyone that you won’t drink and drive
• Talk to your kids about the dangers of drinking and driving
• Support MADD CANADA

Cost of a magnet:
$5 plus tax (includes shipping)

Price Breakdown:
$1 – to the company for their labour and shipping
$3 – materials and shipping
$1 – goes to MADD Canada

* Please support this great cause for Jen, Ed, this community, and MADD!

Purchase your magnet here:

This is what it looks like on the back of my car!

*Sunday FUNday (Oshawa)
12pm-4pm
Oshawa Community Museum
1450 Simcoe Street South

Victorian homes were quite different than those built today. The interior décor was very ornate and carefully decorated with dark furniture and fabrics being used; the architecture in Oshawa was usually an assortment of Queen Anne, Second Empire and Italianate styles. The Houses at the Oshawa Community Museum are Victorian homes but different styles than those. Robinson House is in the Dutch Colonial style, Guy House is a simple wooden frame farmhouse with Georgian features and Henry House is a Regency style cottage.

On Sunday March 6th from 12 – 4 pm, you will see just how different life was for families around a Victorian home. Explore roles of the family, tools and gadgets that made their life easier and how homes are different now in terms of decorating style and architecture.

Get hands-on with real artifacts from the Victorian Era used in real Victorian homes, over 150 years ago!! Admission is $5 per person.

Cost: $5 per person
