Five for Five
June 2022
Five of the Top Stories at Five Counties this month!
Let the Bidding begin!
With the help of our generous community partners and Backyard Summer Social Sponsors, we will be hosting an online auction from June 20-26.

New items will be added right up until June 20th so keep checking back so you don’t miss out. You could take home this Sony Extra Bass Wireless speaker, a family photography session, awesome gift baskets, toys and games for the kids and so much more.

All proceeds help support our Building Abilities for Life Campaign. Helping kids get the speech and language therapy they need and keeping them off of wait lists.
We are excited to be introducing a new, updated phone system at Five Counties Children’s Centre!
Our new phone system is designed so that families can call one toll free phone number,
1-888-779-9916, to reach any one of our five sites: Campbellford, Minden/Haliburton, Cobourg, Lindsay and Peterborough. Please remember to update your contact information for us!

As we transition to our new phone system, we are working hard to ensure that any disruptions to service are kept to a minimum. We appreciate your patience and understanding as our team works with this new system to better serve our clients, families, and community partners.
Get ready for the event of the summer. Brought to you by our local Rotary Clubs, this event will have everything you want plus a few extra surprises.

Do you have your tickets yet? You can order them online, call us or send us an email to make sure you are on the guestlist!

It’s going to be an amazing day full of fun activities, delicious food, live music and awesome prizes.

Listen to amazing performances by Irish Millie and the Mayhemingways, sponsored by Charlotte Products.
Try some delicious food from some local favourites; Taso’s, La Mesita and Gus’s Grill 2 Go. Enjoy sweet treats from Central Smith and Flossophy and hold on to some great memories thanks to our photobooth sponsor TD.
