Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Our interview continues with ~ The Next Generation Leahy
The Next Generation Leahy
Ontario Festivals Visited ~ Interview
Doug Leahy is one of eleven children who grew up playing the fiddle and dancing. Living on the farm in Lakefield makes his studies from the University of Guelph in Agriculture come to great use. He enjoys offering his Belgian horses, during the winter months on the farm, for logging and sleigh rides. I would imagine “Carol Singing” leading up to Christmas is a great joy on the farm. Sports still play a large part of Doug’s life, as he continues to play in a men’s hockey league.
Jennifer is used to a large family also, especially being the youngest of thirteen children. She, herself, is fabulous at playing the piano and singing. Her Bachelor or Arts degree from University of Guelph and a teaching degree at Brock University has gone a long way in her endeavors to home school the children. She too loves to play sports, joining in with the Peterborough Women’s soccer league.
Together, this great team, operates a cow/calf beef farm at the Leahy Homestead Farm in Lakefield.

“Get in the Game”! ~ “Practice, Practice, Practice”!
Regarding the children, Doug and Jennifer believe to some degree, they should just “let them be and see what evolves”. Both parents share with us that all kids and families, need to “Get in the Game”! That “Practice ~ Practice ~ Practice and the Reward will be there in the end”.
As a family “Balance” and having a “Schedule” is very important. Jennifer says the children practice before each meal and gathers in the evenings for fun!
