REBOUND CHILD & YOUTH SERVICES NORTHUMBERLAND CREATES FUNDRAISING CALENDAR TO CELEBRATE 20TH ANNIVERSARY.
Northumberland NewsBy Karen Longwell
COBOURG -- Youth help youth in a new calendar fundraiser for Rebound Child and Youth Services just released this month.
The calendar was created using photos and artwork from Northumberland youth as a way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rebound, said Rachel Edwards, program co-ordinator and facilitator for the organization. Proceeds from the calendar will go towards Rebound’s program development fund, she said.
Rebound put out a call to Northumberland schools and community groups for youth to submit artwork for the calendar. The final pieces were selected in a voting day where the names of the artists were not known to the voters, she said.
Sydney Stewart, 16, a Grade 11 student at Cobourg Collegiate Institute, created two paintings for the calendar featuring Cobourg landmarks in the harbour -- the lighthouse and the Victoria Park beach gazebo.
“I thought the lighthouse would be perfect because it is local,” she said.
A photograph of fireworks on July 1 in Cobourg came after Andrew Atanasoff, 15, a CCI Grade 10 student, took a photography course from local teacher, Cindy Taylor. Andrew said he chose photos taken around the area.
At only 12 years old, Grafton St. Mary Catholic Elementary School Grade 7 student McKayla Tackaberry has already developed a talent for painting. Her painting of her grandfather’s tractor is featured in the calendar.
Jocelyn Connor, 16, a home school student from Port Hope, said she loves to do photography in her free time nearly everyday. Three of her photos were chosen for the calendar including one taken while flying in her grandfather’s ultralight plane. Her favourite photo is one of her sisters on swings taken from a lower perspective.
Rebound is a not-for-profit, incorporated, charitable organization, which provides programs and services to children, youth and families in Northumberland. Services include court diversion programs, homework clubs, parenting programs and self-esteem programs.
Calendars are $20 and can be ordered by contacting Rachel Edwards at 905-372-0007 ext. 223 or email@example.com .
