Friday is a big day. My team and I (i.e. My assistant Megan, my dear Mom and my Mom’s dear friend Marilyn) are setting up the Catherine Alison Interiors Table Top display at Appleby College.
The theme we’ve come up with is Traditional English Outdoor Wedding. Think Four Weddings and a Funeral meets The Proposal. You are going to see how old and new can mix well when carefully thought out. Right now I have a garage filled with items like structural greens, planters, table linens, flatware, crystal, and flooring. Tomorrow night I’m off to my cousins place to pick out the custom obelisk he’s made me. It needs to be primed, sanded and then have 2 coats of paint applied. Lots still to do and very worth the effort!
What I love about this Maycourt event is that it is benefiting the Halton-based mental-health wellness centre – Reach Other Centre for Kids (ROCK). “ROCK is the largest accredited children’s mental health centre in the Region of Halton. We provide a multi-disciplinary approach to prevention, assessment and treatment of infants, children, youth and their families. Clients must be experiencing emotional, behavioural, developmental or social difficulties that put them at risk for serious mental health problems to qualify for clinical services. Our services are available to infants, children, youth and their families aged birth to 18 and up to 21 in the case of homelessness. Clients must reside in the Region of Halton. Our treatment residence is licensed annually by the Ministry of Community and Social Services.” – from ROCK’s website. This means kids and families in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Georgetown are going to be better served.
Bryan Baeumler is participating in the event and is a big sponsor of ROCK. His Byan Baeumler Foundation (BFF) is planning a 16,000 sq foot renovation to service more families in need. You can learn more about his involvement here. He suffered from anxiety and panic attacks in his 20s and is now a spokesperson for ROCK.
