Kawartha Lakes Bus Drivers - A Hardy Lot!

Kawartha Lakes Artist Joan Rehill
Beloved Bus Driver
While most of us are still tucked in bed, Kawartha Lakes bus drivers are readying their buses for the day ensuring their buses are safe, warm and ready to welcome passengers.
Most schools in City of Kawartha Lakes are bus schools, and families rely on these hardy caring people to safely transport children to and from school- a job that requires being available in the early morning and mid-afternoon, as well as driving roller coaster backroads in crazy weather!
Do you remember a great school bus driver from your years as a student?
One school bus driver that is a favourite of our family is also a talented artist and has operated a Folk Art Studio in her crafts and gifts store in the village of Omemee for many years. Do you know who we're writing about?
Yes, it's Joan Rehill at Butternut Folk Art Omemee.  Looking to commission an unique gift or learn a new skill? Visit Joan's Website : Butternut Folk Art for contact information. 

Hooray for School Bus Drivers!

Can you imagine how life would be without the care school bus drivers give? What are some gift ideas school bus drivers might enjoy?
