One of our longstanding family traditions is drawing names for Christmas presents. This past year, I wanted to get a non-traditional gift for my brother-in-law and I knew he would appreciate something that connected with the local community, something that others could share in. As a lifelong Dundas resident, my gift of a donation in his name to the EcoPark Campaign proved to be the perfect idea. Connecting with our community in this way is something close to us. The Foundation followed up this donation with a letter of acknowledgment and advised the donation was being directed to the gateway work. His gift letter arrived just before Christmas and was proudly posted. Needless to say he was proud knowing he was helping out his local community. My sincere appreciation to staff and volunteers of the Hamilton Conservation Authority and the Foundation for the professional manner in which my personal request was handled and for the fine work they do for the citizens of Hamilton.
