Curling for Easter Seals kids


The Easter Seals Society, whose financial and emotional support means so much to many young people, was again delighted by the participation of the community, service clubs and local businesses  in the 2012 fund raising bonspiel held at the Morrisburg Curling Club on Saturday, March 3. “We had 12 teams, including two of Little Rocks, an Oddfellows team and teams from the Morrisburg and District Lions and the Iroquois-Matilda Lions clubs with us,” said Bob Ruddock, treasurer for the Dundas County Easter Seals. “We were able to raise $1,425. Betty Locke organized the event and she and Jim donated a stained glass work for the draw, which was won by Fred Langlotz. This was a for fun bonspiel, although prizes for the top two teams were donated. The final fun draw was a competition between Kyra Lewis, six, and Graham Pemberton, 84.” Pictured above (l-r), in back, are Martina Lewis, Ross Ward, representing Easter Seals, and Emily Byers.
