Ontario ParaSport Games Bid We submitted a bid to host the 2014 Ontario Para Sport games. This was an aggressive goal, but it helped our team identify our assets and brought the community together. We were runners up in the selection process, but Para Sport Ontario strongly urged us to apply to host the games in years to come. Mentors and students

New Trail Developed Linking Clinton-Hullet We received a $10,000 Farm Credit Canada, Agri Spirit Grant. Thank you to the landowners who graciously allowed us to use their land for our new trail.
