Student Oratorical Competition

The art of public speaking can be an important skill. As students prepare for the future, expressing their thoughts and opinions to an audience can be a valuable experience. We would like to give the youth in our community the opportunity to do that through an Oratorical competition. This is will be a yearly competition held in April of each year. Watch this web page for updates in the coming year!

Lawn aerating perforates the soil with small holes to allow air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the grass roots. This helps your grass become stronger and helps combat lawn compaction.

If you would like to help us aerate lawns and raise money for kids activities in town this coming May of 2018, please contact Rob Perry at 519-404-1447.

Join us as we will be raising money and collecting Teddy Bears for Grand River Hospital Emergency Room. Young children who arrive at the hospital for care in emergency are able to receive a teddy bear for comfort while they are in the hospital and they get to take it home.

Last year we collected 284 stuffed toys, and almost $1500 from raffle ticket sales and 50/50 draw tickets, all of which went to Grand River Hospital for this worthy program. Mark it on your calendar and join us for this fun event and help us bring comfort to kids when they need it most!
