September 19, 2016 – STRATFORD – After spending many years in Toronto and visiting annually for the Stratford Festival, John and Leslie Wright are happy to call this community home.
With retirement on the horizon, the Wrights purchased a home in Stratford nine years ago. They knew they wanted to spend the next phase of their life taking in all that Stratford had to offer; walking along the Avon, visiting the quaint shops, dining at top-notch restaurants and of course the excellent festivals and theatre performances.
They also knew that they wanted to give back in some way to their new community. As such, the two got involved at the United Church and John joined the Board at the Stratford Summer Music Festival where he currently sits as Treasurer. Now the Wrights have established an endowment fund at the Stratford Perth Community Foundation (SPCF) as another way of impacting this community.
