The building will be on display at the McNab/Braeside Boat Launch on June 27 & 28, 2014.
The building is complete except for the staining of the White Pine siding. The successful bidder may wish to choose their own colour.
It will be offered in the silent auction, and the Garden House will be delivered within a 10km limit to the high bidder’s location.
This list does not include many “in-kind” donations and personal assistances in bringing this project to fruition. The donors are listed in alphabetic order.
Thanks to participating organizations and individuals for their help.
Should the reader wish to construct a building like this in the future, supplies and services may be obtained from the generous commercial establishments shown below. Patronage of these businesses is encouraged.
Arnprior & McNab/Braeside Archives have produced a CD to assist the “do-it- yourself” builder.

The winners of the annual Knights of Columbus Substance Abuse Poster competition were announced lately at two local schools.
Arnprior Knights of Columbus Council 2082 Grand Knight Wayne Pickering and Deputy Grand Knight Blaine Mullins visited the winning students to present them with their certificates.
The Substance Abuse Poster Contest encourages students 8-11 and 12-14 age groups to develop an original poster and slogan in the drug and alcohol abuse categories to discourage their peers from experimenting with drugs and alcohol. Each year there are 4 possible winners with one winner chosen from each category. Each student that enters receives a Knights of Columbus certificate for their participation.
Darcy Fridgen, the Arnprior Knights of Columbus Council 2028 Chairman of the Substance abuse program, says, “it’s these children who make the substance abuse program so successful. It makes a huge difference to have the kids involved in these contests. It really brings home what the future effects of alcohol and drug abuse can have on their friends and families, it’s all about awareness”.
1st place winners from Knights of Columbus Council 2082 here in Arnprior are Mackenzie Ivory of St. Joseph’s Catholic School and Alex Moore of John XXIII Catholic School. Both participants took home a winning monetary award and certificate as shown in the photos.
Alex Moore of John XXIII also took a winning spot in the next level of the Substance Abuse Poster Contest program, District 41 of the Pembroke Diocese. He is shown with his medal as well as mentioned, his council winnings.
The Arnprior Knights of Columbus Council 2082 would like to thank the School’s, their administration, the judges and all the Participants that took part in this years contest and we hope to see them all again next year.

The students of St. Joseph's High School in Renfrew ON, were asked to participate in a "Keep Christ in Christmas" contest. They were asked to draw pictures that could be distributed to the elementary schools in Arnprior to colour. The drawings were to reflect the theme "Keep Christ in Christmas".

The Knights awarded Cash prizes, "Christ is Christmas" Pins and Certificates to four individuals. The illustrations were provided to the elementary schools in Arnprior for the children in all grades to colour. Pins were distributed to ALL students in John XXIII and St. Joseph's Separate schools in Arnprior.
This pilot project was well received. Grand Knight Bob Coyne and Deputy Grand Knight/Program Chairman Dan Nicholas were on hand to award prizes in Renfrew.
