The Ontario Trillium Foundation has approved our application for funding and awarded us $96,700 for upgrading our ice facility. These upgrades will be started as soon as possible and our facility will be in excellent shape for the start of the 2014 – 15 season. Congratulations go to Midland Curling Club and those members who worked hard to put the application together. A heartfelt thank you goes to the OTF for considering our application and awarding us the funding to keep our ice plant sound for many years to come.

Paint, Pints and Pizza
We are planning a painting weekend, Friday August 22- Sunday August 24 and we need your help.

This is a large area and we will need lots of people so put it on your calendar and come out and help us freshen the place up.

The Midland Curling Club Garage, Plant and Bake Sale was an amazing success this year. We cleared over $4500 which brings the Centennial Fund over its yearly goal of $15,000. The arena was packed with donations from our members – Thank you for saving your items for us. All of these items which you dropped off needed to be unpacked, sorted and priced which took many hours and days of hard work by many volunteers – Thank you to the volunteers. Many members and non-members offered to contribute baked goods to the bake sale – Thank you to the bakers. Lastly, there was a group of hard working volunteers who worked that day and in the clean up week – in the parking lot, on the street, at the bake sale, on the floor, at the check out, and wherever else they were needed – Thank you.
This was an amazing effort by our membership to raise funds for our club. Good job Midland Curling Club
