Students from Georgian’s Cabinetmaking Techniques program showed off their work and gave back to the community at a Barrie Campus holiday bazaar this week. Several people came by to admire and purchase student-made wooden rocking horses, tables, medicine cabinets and more.

Many visitors also left donations to complement the 18 rocking horses students will be giving to the Barrie Native Friendship Centre and the Women and Children’s Shelter of Barrie as part of their holiday toy drive.

The students, celebrating the end of a successful term, pitched in with set-up and decorating. Some even baked holiday-themed treats to offer bazaar customers and visitors. Everyone enjoyed socializing with instructors, staff and students from across Georgian College.

There are a few hand-made rocking horses and ‘as-is’ furniture pieces still available for sale. Anyone interested in purchasing them can contact lynn.mackinlay@georgiancollege.ca.
