Legacy

The Friends is a non-profit charitable organization. A bequest from an individual in Muskoka allowed the agency to renovate the old bowling alley in Gravenhurst at 141 Sharpe Street East. This derelict building is now an attractive, functioning space providing services to seniors five days a week as well as providing two affordable apartments for members of the community.

Talk with us about a lasting legacy in memory of a loved one, planning your estate in advance or a gift of stock. Your bequest will make a difference in the quality of life for others.
