Can you take an hour to celebrate with us on Saturday April 26th?

The Ontario Government's Trillium Foundation

This coming Saturday, at 11am, we’ll be doing some concentrated celebrating at the Club for an hour or so.

Join us in celebrationThe Honourable Jim Bradley, MPP, with Mayor McMullan of St. Catharines, and a member of the Ontario Trillium Foundation (the Government of Ontario’s OTF) evaluation committee, Mr. Harvie Hagerty, will be joining us for a formal announcement that will help us to radically revamp our great facility later this year.

Please come and join us (we’re even providing coffee and some sweet treats!); invite your family and friends. It’s your opportunity to say thank you to the OTF, and the City for their financial and in-kind support for our athletes, and indeed young athletes from right across the Region, who use our unique facility every year at about this time and through to the summer.

We hope that you can come out and join us in celebration.


A March Monday of Media Mayhem

niagara olympic clubEveryone talks about March Madness, and we had our own NOC  micro-version , jumping through hoops on Monday, March 3rd. At Sharon’s urging we had set up a St. Catharines City Council presentation for that evening, and as a result of the pre-publication of the agenda, we were interviewed by the St. Catharines Standard at the Club, on the prior Saturday. The outcome was a reasonably positive article, by Marlene Bergsma, in Monday’s paper, to start the day.

Then at around 4pm we were invited to be interviewed on the radio by Kevin Jack at CKTB 610 in St. Catharines. Sharon and Ian had a fun time with Kevin for about 12 minutes, and then it was off to City Hall for the presentation to Council, which of course is always televised. The presentation went well, and we really thank all of you Club members, parents and supporters who came along to the Council meeting as our cheering section.

An unexpectedly busy yet fun day holding court!
