Elora Curling Club Update
Many people have stepped up to volunteer at the club recently.
Thank you to Darlene Furlong who is stepping down as the kitchen coordinator. We welcome Shelly Keating, who is taking over the position. New this year we have volunteers to assist with individual events; Darlene Furlong, Jean Wolting, Louise Garton, Carol McKenzie, and Team Russell. Let us know if you would be interested in joining this group to assist with an event.
At our recent elections, Brad Sheridan and Mark Freure we remain as President and Vice. Thank you to Nick Riddell who has completed his term on the board. Joining the board this year are Fred Brown, Dan Dow, and Tina Mazerolle.
Tina has volunteered to head a new social committee this year.
Are you are enjoying the summer/spring weather but are missing the social time you love during the curling season? Do you ever wish there were more events during the season and year round other then curling events to hang out with fun people like ECC members? Well here is your chance as we are forming a team called the ECC social committee to plan and execute some more social gatherings.
Currently, we are looking for people to help with planning and prepping a float in the Canada Day Parade. If you have a passion for the ECC, Canada Day and building and decorating floats with some time free on the long weekend, we need your help so please get in touch.
If you have an idea or would like to be involved in the social committee or just the float, you can email TEAMM2002@gmail.com
Look for more communication and details on upcoming events.
Your Social Committee
Let Tina know by the weekend if you would like to help with the float so we know if there is enough interest to proceed.
Dan Dow will head the membership committee. Also volunteering to assist with registration this year are Anne Dobbie and Meghan Dow.
Membership fees will remain the same this year, with an early bird discount option. The debit machine will be operating, and cash accepted at the club on discount day Sept 15, 2018. Stay tuned for more details.
