Egg Farmers of Ontario sponsor the Maple Leaf

Centennial Maple Leaf was installed by newly weds Eric and Sarah Simpson on their Woodgreen barn soon after their wedding,  July 17, 2010.  Eric and Sarah are young egg farmers whose quilt block was sponsored by Egg Farmers of Ontario.

Centennial Maple Leaf

The Centennial Maple Leaf is an integral part of our Canadian history. It was designed for Canada’s one hundredth anniversary in 1967. The people of Wardsville chose this symbol for a quilt block to celebrate the Village’s bicentennial and to express our awareness of the greater connection our community has with Canada as a whole.

The maple tree is well regarded for its sap and wood. Its leaves are soaked to create a special wood stain to protect wood products. The maple leaf is a local and national symbol. Our maple trees are a source of pride for our country and our beginnings in the North American wilderness.



Egg Farmers of Ontario are the proud sponsors of the Centennial Maple Leaf

  2. Wardsville Bicentennial

    Great blog, Wendi. I’m googling recipes all the time. As an egg farmer, I appreciate the information about eggs, the world’s most perfect food.
