Some comments from TELUS Volunteers:

We had a great day at the farm, Courtenay, and hope to do it again next year! - Leah

We had a wonderful time and glad to help out.  We have already been back to the farm because my son, Connor, loves the horses!  Now, he wants a horse!  All Connor talks about is Tom and Prince!  Thank you for adding to our memories of Maplewood Farm.  Our older sons, who are now 17 and 15, spent many days at the farm.  It was good to give back. -  Ron and Connor Buziol

We had a terrific day and our family certainly enjoyed giving back to Maplewood Farm where we spent countless hours with our boys when they were younger. Thanks so much for posting these pictures and also for the passes!! - Cheers, Craig, Lisa, Colin & Chris.

We all had too much fun and especially my little guy, Jaden; he can't stop painting away...hehe. Looking forward to beautify the farm again next year. We shall be there again this year, thanks to you, Courtenay for the complimentary passes. - Joanne & Jaden

That was a lot of fun, and thanks for the passes! We've always loved the farm and are looking forward to another visit soon! - Michael & Elizabeth
