A Bench for Baxter

On June 14th of this year we lost a wonderful individual. He touched many of us personally and many of us after hearing his story. 
Baxter was a bright and talented individual. Sketches, music he found solace in both. 
There has been great interest in having a bench located a Lowville Park in his memory for his parents and friends to go and feel close to him. It was his favourite calming place. 
With help from our City Councillor we have received permission from the City to go ahead with the memorial bench.  We have received offers of help from members of our community however there is a cost for the bench, tree and plaque.  We will receive credit back for items we are able to donate going forward.  Any contributions that can be made would be greatly appreciated going forward. 
I thank you for your continued support for myself and on behalf of Baxter’s parents. They truly remain touched by the outpouring of support and love our little community has.
