Curling is, and forever will be, a sport richly entrenched in community and volunteer efforts.
And what better time to show our appreciation for these unsung heroes than National Volunteer Week; a celebration of Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers building confidence, competence, connections and community.
The backbone of the sport is deeply rooted in the contributions of volunteers all over Ontario, with some curling facilities operating entirely off of volunteers contributing their time and efforts. It’s no easy task.
CurlON wishes to express our most sincere gratitude to those who contribute to better the sport of curling in Ontario including club representatives, zone representatives, club board members, event volunteers, and the many others who selflessly give to ensure the future of curling in Ontario remains bright. On behalf of the CurlON board of directors and operations staff: thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
In light of this, we’d also like to announce the following community leaders in curling have been awarded the Ontario Volunteer Service Award. They are (L-R):
