As Oakville News had reported earlier, a group of seniors at Kensington Retirement Residence decided to help Lions Foundation for Canada Guide Dogs, and the idea of a lemonade stand was hatched.
On the very hot Wednesday, July 26, several seniors, along with some furry friends, set out to raise some much-needed cash. Well, they were successful. The group of seniors was able to donate $320.00 while engaging with the community.
