Help the LM Montgomery Society of Ontario Burn the Mortgage

The following message is posted on behalf of the the LM Montgomery Society of Ontario:

TO ALL WHO APPRECIATE THE PRESERVATION OF THE HERITAGE OF L.M. MONTGOMERY:

The Lucy Maud Montgomery Society of Ontario has worked hard to preserve both the home of L.M. Montgomery in Leaskdale, a National Historic Site, and the nearby church that was an important part of her life. Four years ago the Society took out a $200,000 loan to buy the Church, and through a lot of hard work have reduced the mortgage to less than $80,000.
