Beeton Lawn Bowling Club 91st Anniversary
Simcoe-Grey MPP Brian Saunderson extended greetings to members of the Beeton Lawn Bowling Club on behalf of the Province of Ontario and the people of Simcoe-Grey in recognition of the club celebrating its 91st Anniversary.
“This historic occasion certainly demonstrates the strength of Beeton’s unwavering community spirit. For generations, the club has provided recreational activities and fellowship to residents. The longevity of the Beeton Lawn Bowling Club is truly remarkable, and clearly, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the many volunteers, the success story will continue to play out for years to come” said MPP Saunderson.
“In addition, we are celebrating club improvements made possible by a $15,300 Capital Grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in 2022. These funds helped the club purchase a greens shaver mower and de-thatcher. This equipment will help the club maintain its reputation of providing an excellent playing surface” Saunderson added.
Congratulations to Debbie Morrison, President of the Beeton Lawn Bowling Club, members and volunteers on this remarkable anniversary.
