Terrific Total Tally for Canadian Tire Hanging Basket Sale
We didn’t dare hope that the 2020 Hanging Basket Sale in support of the Hanover Library would be a huge success. After all, at the beginning of May, the store was still on curbside pickup only, and what with physical distancing measures, we didn’t think as many people as usual would come out to buy baskets.
But thanks to Dale and Cathy Cousins and their wonderful staff at the store, and their willingness to find a way to make this work, we are thrilled to announce that the sale was a smash hit! They had it run the whole month of May instead of just the long May weekend so people wouldn’t crowd into the store, and thanks to this ingenious solution, the library will be receiving the same amount as last year: $4,099!
This funding will help the library in providing our services to the community, including the extra money we put into making online resources available for everyone during the closed period.
Edwin Haas, one of the Library Board trustees, said this: “With what is going on in the world today I am so thankful for the connections we have made that are so strong that they still go above and beyond for us. What an amazing partner / friend we have in Canadian Tire Hanover”. Thanks so much to Dale and Cathy and their staff, and to all of you who purchased hanging baskets during the month of May. You’re the best!
