Still Sexy After Sixty Women’s Wellness Conference was awarded a grant from the Terence Haight Financial Assistance Program, which supports non-profit community organizations, enhancing the quality of life of Gravenhurst residents. 

Terence Haight was born in Peterborough, Ontario, November 5, 1920. His father, a newspaper pressman, moved the young family to Bracebridge for the beauty of the area and clean air. In his lifetime, Terence owned and operated a bakery and a hardware store.

Why did Terence Haight choose Gravenhurst? We know he had a great appreciation for the Town of Gravenhurst during the time he ran his bakery, but more importantly his wife Audrey McDonald grew up in the Town,

What his friends and neighbours did not know was that Terence had invested in mining stocks and quietly amassed a small fortune. To everyone’s surprise he bequeathed over $ 1 million dollars to the Town of Gravenhurst.
