It was a beautiful day, ideal for spring cleaning. With the sun shining so brightly, the results were immediately visible, which seemed to feed everyone’s enthusiasm for working harder to get it all done. The results are superb.
This coming Saturday, at 11am, we’ll be doing some concentrated celebrating at the Club for an hour or so.
The 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.
We would like to start the fall clean up at the track. First on the agenda is Monday, October 1st. We need parents to help put the rail away. JP will be there early to get things started, but then his love of coaching will pull him to the trails. The putting away job is much easier than the spring job of setting up. Many hands make light work!!! and this will get it done quickly. Please let JP know (mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org) you will be available to help so we know that we will have a big crew.
In less than 2 weeks, the spotlight will be upon us, during the BMY A.O. Meet, August 4/5th. This is our biggest showcase event of the Year, and to-date we are short of Volunteers to help with a variety of important functions during that weekend.
If you have friends, relatives and colleagues who might be able to contribute a few hours of their time, please actively encourage them to join us. Please email us with names, and contact information (preferably telephone numbers and email addresses).
With the Olympics actively underway in London at that time, and NOC having one of our athletes on the Canadian Olympic Team, it’s the perfect time to ask people for their help.
