The Volunteer Services Committee at the AGH/FVM were pleased to present the family with a Canada 150 Gift Basket containing several items commemorating Canada’s 150th chosen from our AGH Gift Shop including a baby quilt created by Peggy McPhail.  The fabric for the quilt was “With Glowing Hearts” which was designed and created by a local artisan, Grace Noel, an up and coming Canadian designer from Almonte.
