The Ponemah Beach Central End of Summer Celebration will take place at Ponemah Beach Central Art Center located at 27 Central Ave in the Village of Dunnottar on Sept. 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The party will celebrate summer and highlight the makers and the artists of the region. It will be hosted by Dunnottar Station Museum, as well as Ponemah Beach Central Art Centre.

With handmade artisan goods, baking, jams, jellies, vegetables and honey, as well as music, kids games and special guests, the party will be offered at no charge and everyone is welcome.

“I’m really excited about celebrating the awesome local artisans, craft people and producers we have,” said Leah Passler, one of the event’s organizers. “There will be musicians performing. It will be an exciting day for the whole family.”

Passler said that the event will feature special guests and animal ambassadors from Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre.

The rehabilitation centre has been assisting injured, sick and orphaned wildlife for their return to the wild since 1984.

According to its website, the volunteer-driven registered charity has cared for over 35,000 wildlife. The organization plays a vital role in the ecological and biological processes that are essential to life itself.

“We rely on the generous support of volunteers and donors like you to rehabilitate wildlife and to educate (others) about the awareness, appreciation and peaceful coexistence with wildlife,” stated its website.

Passler said the charity will be bringing in local rescue animals from its centre to put on demonstrations and talk about them during the party.
