DIXONS CORNERS — Dundas County Hospice’s army of volunteers has helped scores of local families needing practical respite and assistance with loved ones in their final days.
On Oct. 29, the community contributed back to Dundas County Hospice, while enjoying a good time of music and an auctioneer’s banter. The organization’s traditional major fundraiser, the annual Hospice Hoedown, again filled the Matilda Hall with supporters.
