Recently, students, teachers and some parents from Hawthorn Elementary School in Dartmouth made a visit to the Park Avenue Community Oven. Over the course of a morning and afternoon, the entire school came out to bake bannock in the oven as part of their end of year celebrations.

We could not be more thrilled to hear about the great time these civic-minded students had baking bannock in the oven.

The school also took up a collection for the community oven and were able to raise over $300! That is enough money to provide firewood for every event at the oven for the next 2 months!

Generous community backing such as this more easily allows the Park Oven to continue to offer our inclusive venue for the enjoyment of citizens and visitors of our neighbourhood. We appreciate Hawthorn’s commitment to our next generation and for supporting volunteer organizations such as our own.

Have you visited the oven and have a story to share? Drop us a note at [email protected] We would love to hear from you!
