… and they’ve arrived!

The latest update on the big shipment from Ottawa …

Mr McLaren made it down to Mississauga and back without incident. He estimates there were between 450 and 500 mats in the trailer + truck that went down (see previous blog post).

And in return — his trailer now has boxes of new milkbags available for pick-up (see this map for directions):

[The trailer] is parked with the back end toward the front of my driveway.  The back door is a ramp. Open the handles on the side and pull on the door and it swings downward easily. (It’s spring loaded so it’s not at all heavy).

Please pick up your boxes (a suggested max. of 10) between Tuesday and Thursday (20-22 Dec.).

So many thank-yous for all the volunteers who’ve made this happen: the weavers and crocheters (and the bag collectors before them!), the drivers for various groups’ mats and bags, McMcLaren for taking everything to CFFC — and returning with boxes of new bags — and Angela Kesthely of Milkbags Unlimited, for so generously offering those boxes. Lots of good will and energy and plain hard work (!) have made this all come together. A pleasure to be part of such a wonderful group of people. Thank you.

And Merry Christmas to you all!
