A sweet treat for County’s hospital

The sweet goodness of maple syrup trickled onto the fundraising stack at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital this morning.

LOHA Farms on Lucks Crossroad, participants in the Maple in the County festivities last week, opened up their property and sugar bush to hundreds of visitors who enjoyed a pancake breakfast and as part of the weekend, a collection was taken up for Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital.

Hosts Chris and Jessie and their children, Leah, Oaklie and Hannah Armstrong (LOHA, get it?) and many volunteers collected $1,350 for the County Hospital.

Chris and Jessie presented the sweet treat Tuesday morning to staff at the hospital. Jessie works as a registered nurse in the Emergency Department and felt it was important for her young family to give back to the County Hospital.

The Armstrong family thank generous community members for visiting the farm and supporting their Maple in the County venture. They also thank wonderful family members, friends and volunteers who helped execute a successful weekend with a special mention going to Al Ingram, PECMH Emergency Department Nurses Cheryl Minaker, Nancey Lough and Susan Billard and X-Ray Technologist, Meghan Stevens for volunteering over the course of the weekend.

Foundation Chairperson Monica Alyea also thanked the community and Armstrong family for supporting Prince Edward County Memorial as a vibrant community hospital.

“This gift means County residents and patients continue to have access to state-of-the-art medical equipment, close to home.”
