Seedrioru: RR#1 Elora, Ontario, NOB 1S0

This address is forever ingrained in the minds and hearts of many generations

So many memories come flooding back when we think of this place. Whether you were a camper, a counselor, kitchen staff, enjoyed a Suvihari, sang at laulupidu – there are lasting memories and friendships formed, love declared … Seedrioru means so much to so many! In my family alone, my aunt, sister, nephew and myself, all met our future spouses there and my sister’s wedding took place there too, back to where it all began. Lasting friendships that are over 60 years old with people that I now consider part of my family. And I KNOW that there are hundreds of you out there, if not thousands, who feel the same way.

Now, imagine …. no Seedrioru, …. no suvihari, ….. no little red house, …. no camp, …. No jaanituli…no laulupidu…no tubing down the Grand … no place to hold special events like weddings, confirmations, birthdays, holiday celebrations, sorority and fraternity events, guiding and scouting events. Seedrioru would not be here if not for the overwhelming generosity of our members and community at large and why we need you to GIVE NOW!! Don’t wait until the last minute to give or leave it up to someone else. We only have 7 weeks to go!


That is just 40, one-thousand dollar donors or teams of donors more – we can get there!!!
