Seasons Greetings from Five Oaks!

Dear Friends of Five Oaks,

As the year draws to a close, as we spend time in the darkness of Winter, we look forward to the return of the light. In mid-2022, we began welcoming guests back, and the government support through the pandemic ceased. We are so grateful for our wonderful, continued partnerships with Brave Waves, Grand River Rafting, GROWE Forest School and our own Acorn Adventure Camp. These opportunities welcomed many to our site, alongside our agricultural workers as commuters to and from work.

At this time, we look forward into the next year. We are planning diligently towards the 2023 budget and are excited to create programs for you as well as our community, and to see many faces new and familiar back at Five Oaks this coming year. I am so grateful and want to express my thanks to you for all the ways you have supported the work of Five Oaks this year. Last month we expressed to you that we are ending the year with a deficit and while many of you have dug deep and shared, we are hoping that you might take this opportunity to invest in Five Oaks programs, land, community that continues to enliven our new strategic plan.

Together, lets enter our 70th year strong!

Wishing you Peace, Happy Holidays & A Happy New Year,

Michael Shewburg, Executive Director
