The Ontario Power Generation made most appreciated donations of $500 to the Morrisburg and District Figure Skating Club and the South Dundas Minor Hockey Association on Monday evening. According to Skate Club president Julie Van Hoof, the annual OPG donation is always a big help and this year it will be put towards some new equipment and the construction of new viewing stands for competition judges. Minor hockey president, Jeff Van Moorsel also expressed his association’s gratitude and said the money is used to provide registration assistance to some of its players. The OPG presentation was done by Dale Adams of Morrisburg who is the Maintenance Manager at the Saunders Generating Station. Adams explained that OPG likes to give back to the community and in this case, “it is going to our youth athletes.” Pictured, l-r, are Ellen Biemond and Julie VanHoof representing the figure skating club, Adams, and Jeff Van Moorsel.
