Athol Recreation Volunteer Bonnie Robson and her grandson Jule pose for the cheering spectators!

Last Sunday at the Caddy Shack mini-golf course in Athol over 70 children and adults from the County enjoyed a wonderful day of mini-golf sponsored by the swell gang at the Athol Recreation Committee.  Kids played for just a Toonie and adults for $7.

Event organizer Glen Wallis,  Chair of the Athol Recreation Centres hopes it will become an annual, all ages event.

Fun was had by all who attended.  Winners of the Raffle prizes are as follows:

Greer Blakely Haennel won the 4 Regent Theatre movie tickets


James Parks won the $25 gift certificate to Giant Tiger.




Thanks to all the staff at Caddy Shack for all their help in making the day a super event and to our poster maker Janet Davies and all those on the Committee that helped to spread the word.

The Athol Recreation Committee is pleased to announce that the Phil Dodd Memorial Award this year goes to long time volunteer and resident Donna Kaye in recognition of her volunteer contribution to the ward of Athol. Donna has supported and continues to support all the wonderful activities that the Athol Recreation Committee provides. Her vast knowledge and experience in childhood education allowed her to lead 2 successfully attended and enjoyed Athol “Bring Back Play” days, along with assisting in the child oriented aspects of many of our past events. Her enthusiasm is infectious and she is a pleasure to work with on our committee.
Thank You and Congrats Donna!
