    “Art and Annette Borkent played music at the wharf on Sunday, July 5th for 2 hours to fundraise money for our local food bank. Maddie and Zoë Borkent, their granddaughters created a beautiful sign and asked passers-by for donations and also joined in by singing some of the songs. They collected $120 which they brought to the food bank the following morning.”     photo by Grant Cruikshank
