Julie Nichols

Julia Nicholls, age 10, of Campbellford, wanted to hold a barbecue to fundraise for Cat Care Initiative “because there’s lots of homeless cats and this might get them noticed enough to get them adopted.” Her idea soon became a full blown carnival. Her grandfather Dave Nicholls and other family members helped too.
