    Why would I call him Susan? I don’t think his original reference to the hospital involved any concerns as to where the money collected at the carnival would go. He was simply expressing thanks to those who supported the event so generously.

  2. Susan Rose says:

    Great community effort as always! Thx

  3. Susan says:

    Councilor Ferguson said it in the same breath. If you have an issue with that hospital reference perhaps you should call him and state your case.

  4. Marnie says:

    I agree it’s an important topic but not in the same breath with a winter carnival.

  5. Chuck says:

    The Hospital Foundation is very much on topic. That’s where the proceeds are going.

  6. ADJ says:

    Of course your right again Marnie…sorry about that.Just following line of questions posted and she pulled for the ditch.

  7. Marnie says:

    Isn’t this a little off-topic? It’s about the carnival, not the hospital. Kudos to the folks in Milford for holding this event. Even if some of the donations collected do find their way to Belleville it’s pretty much a certainty that that is where we will be receiving treatment for all health concerns of a serious nature.

  8. ADJ says:

    Check to see if your donation is going to QHC the mothership…not necessarily Pince Edward Hospital as you would think. Also the “new” hospital is not a for sure thing.I’d like to think any donations are accumulating interest somewhere until needed. I can also see it going into some other “fix-up” much like the swimming pool fund from years ago. Comments Steve?

  9. Mark says:

    The Picton Hospital used to always function in the black. Thousands before us willed thousands of $$ to the hospital upon their demise. This is decreasing dramatically as there is no assurance that those dollars or equipment will be used here. Steve can hopefully provide a more informative answer on this.

  10. Fred says:

    Thanks for getting back Steve but the question is if County people donate to the foundation and Picton hospital services are cut once again, where does that equipment end up? Does County raised funds for the foundation end up in Belleville?

  11. Steve Ferguson says:

    I want to thank the local people and retailes who made donations to the pancake breakfast: Wilbur and Alice Miller for the real maple syrup from real maple trees; Sobeys, Metro, No Frills and the County Farm Store, all in Picton. Thanks for your support!

  12. Steve Ferguson says:

    Two questions, two answers: Monica’s and the mayor’s pancakes were described by some as “sublime”; Where does the money go?: Part of the criteria to move forward toward a new hospital is public engagement. A contribution from 150 people ponying up to eat pancakes makes a statement.

  13. Emily says:

    Hey, I know Monica and cooking just isn’t her thing! How did those pancakes turn out? We’re they like frisbees?

  14. Fred says:

    Steve; Sounds great. Question however, those donations to the County Hospital Foundation. Do they support only the Picton hospital? If services here are shutdown as they have been does that local medical equipment end up at BGH?

  15. Steve Ferguson says:

    A quick thank you to the approximately 150 people who came out to have pancakes, sausages and real maple syrup this morning with all proceeds going to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation.

    The event couldn’t have happened or been as successful as it was without the help of Sam Lanfranco, Valencia Logan, Rev. Canon David Smith, Mary Malone, Catherine Reilly, Philip Knox, and Monica Alyea and Mayor Quaiff who rose to the challenge of cooking dozens (and dozens) of pancakes. Penny Rolinski, Executive Director of the Foundation, proved herself very capable in the kitchen where she was pressed into service. Thank you all so much!

    Any extra food and supplies are on their way to other local charities where I’m sure they’ll be put to good use.

    I sincerely appreciate everyone’s support!
