In August 2016, The Hillsborough Womens Institute group was awarded one of the 150th Celebration Gardens to promote Canada’s 150th birthday in 2017 from the Garden Council of Canada. Their application included that they would like to honour the Father of Confederation, William Henry Steeves who was born in Hillsborough and also a life time member of the WI group Dora Braam, who immigrated from Holland in the 1940’s. She has been an active member in the Hillsborough area and is well known in the community.
