Help Support Renfrew's Summer Concert Series

Judy Elden was a valued Renfrew employee and worked the summer concert series for many years. She loved music and would greet guests entering the park, tap her feet to the beat during the concert and wish concert guests well as they left for the evening. Sadly, Judy passed away in March 2019. Our annual summer concert series is now named in her memory.
