MORRISBURG — The weather may not have been festive, but the artisans and shoppers certainly were! The 41st annual Morrisburg and District Arts and Craft Association Sale was held in mid-November at the Royal Canadian Legion in Morrisburg. Homemade treasures included baked goods, knitted items, pottery and preserves.

The Association turned over part of the proceeds to four local charities, including the Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) Foundation. A cheque for $350 was presented to the Foundation at the event.

“The Morrisburg and District Arts and Crafts Association has been supporting WDMH since 1998 and have donated $9,150 in all!” noted Kristen Casselman, Managing Director. “We are so grateful to them, and the many local groups and businesses that support our local hospital.”
