Simcoe County Circles is proud to be a supporter of many fun, exciting and important events around our communities. Being part of these events isn’t just something we do for fun. These are events that bring our communities closer together and strengthen our ties – but they’re also definitely a ton of fun!
2019 has been pretty great so far and we’re very excited to see what the rest of the year brings us.
Looking back, we’d like to highlight two events that we were thrilled to support.
GBDSS Wellness Fair
This was a fantastic event on May 15th, hosted by the Georgian Bay District Secondary School. Held in Midland’s beautiful Little Lake Park, the day was geared towards students to help promote positive thinking, as well as inspiring and empowering youth for the future.
Members of the Simcoe County Circles team were on hand to enjoy the day and to talk to students, teachers and other members of the community about the programs and services we offer.
The Yummiest Race Run In Ontario!
On June 8th, Simcoe County Circles was excited to be a part of the Butter Tart Trot! Known as “the yummiest race run in Ontario”, this family-geared charity event coincided with Ontario’s Best Butter Tart Festival. Beginning and ending at Ste. Marie among the Hurons, this super fun race involved lots of butter tarts! The SCC team was there to keep all of the runners cool and refreshed with water along the way! We were so proud to hand out nearly 1000 cups of water (and who knows how many butter tarts?!) to an incredible 476 runners.
The race was a total success, as all of the proceeds went toward Camp Quality Southern Ontario. Located in Schomberg, they are a not for profit camp that provides an uplifting experience for children affected by childhood cancer. It costs $1500 per child to send them to camp, so each and every little bit raised by these butter tart loving racers went a very long way. To learn more about the camp, visit www.campquality.org
These events are just a couple of examples of the way we love to be involved with and support our communities. Creating positive, uplifting and forward-looking points of view is key to bringing productive change to our communities. Simcoe County Circles has people, plans and actions to help plan for the future, getting ahead or helping with more pressing issues. For more information, call us at 705-549-1890.
