The Hardie-Fleming Bursary

The Hardie-Fleming Bursary is a memorial bursary in honour of the late Garth Andrew Hardie, a beloved son, brother, friend and uncle; Orma Hardie, a dear mom and grandma; and Norval and Vivian Fleming, loving parents and grandparents. The bursary has been anonymously donated by a local family that supports PFLAG Canada Durham Region.

provide incentive and hope for a prospective student entering post-secondary education.
In this spirit, the Hardie-Fleming Bursary will award $500.00 to a student who embodies hope, care and a thirst for knowledge just like Garth, Orma and Norval.
