Over the past few months, members of our Warm Hearts/Warm Bodies program have been making special lap quilts for patients in the dementia unit at the North Bay Regional Health Centre. At 11am, we will be dropping off these made-from-the-heart quilts, in addition to selling delicious freshly-made donoughts from Leinala’s Bakery and refreshing lemonade from Smith’s Market. Proceeds raised from this sale will be going towards our Defeat Depression Walk/Run fundraiser on May 27.
