Home Hardware is celebrating 60 years, and the Haliburton and Minden stores joined the festivities May 11-12.

Each store planned its own celebration, with a few friends from the community, such as Moose FM, the Dysart and Minden Hills fire departments and Pockets the clown.

The stores welcomed locals and cottagers to partake in fun and bargains. Karley

Gazley, assistant manager in Haliburton, said everyone pitched in. “Everybody has been a great help.”

Assistant manager, Carol Mowat, also commended everyone for helping out. “It has been a team effort to get ready for this,” she said.

“Lots of cottages were being opened, so we expected to be very busy, and we were.”

With the garden centre open, as well as the new automated lumber shed in Haliburton, and free carnations for mom, there was a lot to see and do.
