Charitable community support ‘The Reasons’ for civic recognition

Rob Manlow and Peter Rea brightening the day for quarantined residents at H.J. McFarland Nursing Home soon after the COVID-19 pandemic struck in March 2020.

Prince Edward County music group Peter Rea and The Reasons were bestowed a Civic Recognition Award at the Feb. 13 County council meeting.

Nominated by councillor Roy Pennell, the group was recognized for many years of entertainment and support at charitable community events including a fundraiser for the hospital and numerous visits to seniors’ homes.

“The Reasons never fail to deliver and bring joy to those in our community, even through the COVID-19 pandemic when they played outside to keep spirits high in our long-term care homes,” said Mayor Steve Ferguson.

Honoured at council were Peter Rea, Mike Bond, Steve Wilson, John Sharkey, John De Vries and Rob Manlow (not able to attend the presentation).

    Congratulations to a great group who go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to providing entertainment and happiness for PEC residents and more. We moved away from the County 4 yrs ago and there are three things we miss the most.
    1. The Reasons
