The OVFC is saddened by of the tragic loss of Eganville native and long time OVFC volunteer, Paula Bashford. Paula was killed in a car accident recently and one of Eganville’s bright lights has gone out. When Paula and her husband Mike purchased a home in Eganville, she was very soon contacting the OVFC to volunteer. Her love of healthy food and community was a natural fit to our group. Paula developed strong relationships quickly and for those of us who were so fortunate to be in her company, we have been blessed forever. Michael Bashford and family have requested that for those wishing to make a donation in Paula’s memory, that they be made to the OVFC. For those wishing to do so, cheques can be mailed to: OVFC 24 Tubman Lane, Burnstown ON K0J 1G0 or by e-transfer to: treasurer@ottawavalleyfood.org  No password is required. Many heartfelt thanks.
