Harten’s Barber Shop was one of the many business that participated in the recent Queenstown Moon Light Magic by providing their best Hot Chocolate recipes to the public. Thanks to the generosity of the public, Frank Iezzi, President of the AVA, received $95 from Laura Harten owner of Harten’s Barber Shop, located at 736 Queen St. E.

The goal of the Algoma Veterans Association is to build the Superior Ridge Retreat. The purpose of the SRR is to offer each individual the opportunity to stay in their own private cabin with all the amenities, access to the main retreat house and property. They will have access to vetted professionals and peers in all areas to support them in their stay, offering all current evidence-based treatment modalities.

Every donation is crucial to the success of the AVA and will be acknowledged and honoured. There will be a considerable promotion campaign and branding in all areas of social media and an appreciation plan for all who donate or partner with them in any form. The AVA wants to embrace and support this unique project and has created the following structure to assist them in determining the level of support.

This past two months, the AVA has had several donations that they would like to thank:

  • Soo Grey Hounds,
  • RBC,
  • Royal Canadian Legion Branch 189,
  • Bruce Mines; and
  • The Breakfast Pig.
