Help the LMMSO bring Maud to Life(size)!
Maud the Reader, a sculpture by local Uxbridge artist Wynn Walters is our fundraising initiative for 2013. Please help us realize our dream of a life-sized version of Maud, seen here in her maquette form, contentedly seated in our Community Church Garden at the Historic Leaskdale Church.
The Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario
It takes a lot of dedicated people to preserve the memory of our beloved Lucy Maud Montgomery. We have restored the Manse and we are just putting the finishing touches on the interior. In 2006, we purchased the Leaskdale Presbyterian Church where Ewan Macdonald preached. The Church provides us with much needed space, washrooms, parking, etc.
Along with the people and acquisitions, we also require money. The Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit registered charity, with no administration costs. 100% of proceeds go to the restoration and maintenance of our Church, as well as the Manse, for visitor education and entertainment.
Donations We welcome all kinds of donations-financial, inkind or artifactual. A financial donation or bequeath should be addressed to the Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario in the form of a cheque or money order.If you have a special request as to where you want the money to go like the statue of Maud, the church garden, the manse, church or programming, please let your wishes be known. Pay Pal or Canada Helps is another option. If you have further questions, call Barbara Pratt 905-852-3517.
Do you have some volunteer time? We always need you to help with an event or some repairs or improvements.
Our artifact requirements are very specific as Maud took many pictures of the inside of the Manse but small items from the Edwardian era are always needed.
You can be involved! Memberships are available. Donations are greatly received. We issue tax receipts for donations of CDN$25.00 or more. Your support will be put to good use.
