BOWLS REFURBISHMENT

June 25th, 2021


A very special thank you to everyone who helped for a job more than well done! We have worked for 4 weeks outside. Some mornings have been cold, hot, sunny and windy. Avril is camera shy, I missed Mary and Lorraine who kept us on track for the size “0”’s for indoors to capture them working. I was busy cleaning bowls and forgot about pictures. If I missed anyone, I apologize. I was a better cleaner than painter!

I saw the post from Cary Lucier of Windsor and commented that it was a great idea to repaint the bowls that were in sad shape. Theresa ran with the idea and recruited help. Others joined in including new members, Linda and Jennifer. Bill was the lone man. Lorraine told us what colours to use on the indoor bowls.  It took about 3 mornings to clean and paint every set. Friday should see us about 95% finished. We are waiting on a couple of sets of bowls that are missing.

New members who rent bowls will find it much easier to identify the bowls they are using. When we have corporate events the bowls will look terrific!

The Board gave me approval to buy supplies which might have been $150, but I spent less than $15 thanks to donations, which were very much appreciated!

We painted about 50 sets of club bowls. Some aren’t used often but when they are they look new and spiffy.

A huge thanks to everyone including Cary for the idea.

2020 ANNUAL FALL MEETING NOT HELD DUE TO COVID
December 1st, 2020

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the Club was unable to hold its Annual Fall Meeting in October, 2020. Provincial regulations regarding the maximum number of people allowed to gather or meet, indoors or outdoors, made it impossible for us to obtain the necessary numbers required for a quorum to render the meeting official. As a result, a sufficient number of members were nominated to executive and board positions, and until we hold elections for these positions, the following members will serve as Executive Officers on a provisional basis:

PRESIDENT - Ken Maitland
VICE PRESIDENT - Neil Johnson
SECRETARY - Elizabeth Dawson
TREASURER - Al Price
DIRECTORS - Suzanne Day and Rodger Carey
PAST PRESIDENT - Tony Farrell


​A full list of provisional Executives, Board Members, and Chairpersons can be found on the Executive page.
