This past Friday night was a time to come together to support a young man named Adam who has been having health problems for many months. And come together we did. The Almonte Civitan Hall was filled to capacity with folks who wanted to show their support.

Plans were made weeks ago. Family who got the event going thought it was a good idea to gather everyone to say “we’re with you Adam.” And so we did never thinking for a moment there would be such an amazing outpouring of support.

What an excellent night it was! So many folks turned out from the area and from further away. So many others who couldn’t attend Friday supported in other ways. We were amazed and delighted to see such generosity which included donations of food, silent auction items and gifts, money collected and absolutely fantastic music.

Kindness as experienced Friday night, is both humbling and exhilarating. Thank you seems so inadequate. Together the Puddington Family and Prescott Brown Family wishes to say how much it meant to all of us to see how very successful the “Fundraiser for Pudd” was. Adam knows that as his health needs continue there are many, many who care so much. It matters that we are with him. Our thanks!
