Tournament and Jitney Sponsors
We host several tournaments where club members from neighbouring towns come to compete for prize money and to enjoy the warm hospitality of Saugeen Shores Lawn Bowling Club. In addition, our reputation for excellent meals attracts bowlers to these competitions. Our year-end jitney for club members and guests includes prize money and gift certificates generously donated by our sponsors. We bowl two games each, then enjoy a barbeque and delicious potluck dinner at the club house.
We appreciate the generous donations from the following loyal supporters:
New Horizons Grant from Employment and Social Development Canada
Our “Seniors in Motion” was possible from a generous New Horizons for Seniors Program grant that included new senior-friendly equipment (smaller, coloured bowls, and bowl lifters and launchers), training our coaches and partnering with the Town of Saugeen Shores and Saugeen First Nation for assistance in publicity, program registration and evaluation. We included indoor lawn bowls and a mat so the program will be held year round. Part of the program also included upgrades to our lighting and sprinkler system as well as new sun shades.
Particpaction Community Better Challenge sponsored us to promote our “Give it a Try” program with the goal to encourage us all to be more active.
Seniors Community Grant
The Seniors Community Grant Program, through The Ministry for Seniors and Accessibility, sponsored the development of our website and a marketing plan to reach out to seniors and people with disabilities to stay independent, active and socially connected.
