Thank you
On Saturday, January 13, 2018, the Creemore Curling Club hosted its annual Mixed Bonspiel. It was a resounding success, in no small measure, due to the overwhelming financial assistance from our two main sponsors Midwest Metals and Stephens Co. Several local businesses also generously supported the event through prize donations including Foodland, Creemore Springs Brewery, Home Hardware, IDA Pharmacy, Clearview Tea Co, Cardboard Castles, Victorian Values, Stayner Physiotherapy and The Hundred Mile Store. Thank you very much for your kind support.
Volunteers can be hard to come by in this hectic age but here in Creemore we are fortunate to have a large contingent of active members that, through their selfless participation, truly contributed to our successful outcome. From Marie’s amazing home cooked meals to Paul’s outdoor barbecue done in freezing temperatures, our ice committee’s tireless efforts and the host of bartenders and supporters, Creemore residents once again demonstrated their investment in the community. Thanks again to all those who tirelessly gave their time to help make the event so much fun.
