In late September the Canadian Mint will cease production of the hallowed penny. This coin is so much a part of our history but it has become too expensive to manufacture. It is estimated that Canadians have in excess of 5BILLION dollars worth of pennies in their cupboards, bottles, pockets and drawers.
At the DSC we would like to relieve you of this soon – to -be – worthless burden and so every time that you visit us we hope that you will drop your pennies into the clearly marked, enormous container. We will save our pennies all summer long and then count them up in October after our Open Days end for the season. Please help us to raise much-needed funds by donating your pennies to help the donkeys and mules. Thank you!
Sandra Pady, Executive Director
