Record Numbers turn out for Annual Sugar Party
April 13, 2014: Over 900 maple syrup enthusiasts and supporters of the BMP Foundation came from near and far to enjoy yet another great day at the 22nd Annual Owl Hoot Sugar Party which took place at The Owl Hoot Farm in Stanbridge East, owned by John and Dianne Rhicard. Net proceeds from this event will be donated to the BMP Foundation.
This is a very popular spring-time activity for local families and Hospital/Foundation supporters. Its many attractions include live music, blacksmith demonstrations, timber hewing, horse-drawn wagon and ox cart rides, homemade doughnuts and bake table, a canteen and fresh maple syrup on snow.
We thank all of those who helped make this event such a success. In particular, the Foundation extends a very appreciative "merci beaucoup" to the Rhicard family (at right) and friends for their kindness, hospitality and generosity during these 22 years.
