Bird houses

I would like to extend my sincere thank you to all of the businesses and people who have so generously donated materials and support for my project of building bird houses to be donated to the elementary schools in Vernon and surrounding areas.

To date, I have delivered 1,700 bird houses to the schools.

Also, a big thank you to the teachers who have embraced this project for their students.

A special thank you goes out to Larry and Lynda Doyle, Gerry Hutchinson and Laurie French and to the neighbours that pitch in and help on the days that we cut plywood.
