Over the year, she and her husband held small chilli dinners in their house. Her husband Les had a special recipe involving several types of beans. He promises to share if for this blog!
Over the course of the nice weather in Ottawa, these snowbirds raised $3000 dollars. The intended all of it to go to the Little Yellow School House. But at the last minute, diverted $500 to help the victims in Haiti.
Over the weekend, they went to the special needs school with money in hand and presented it.
