Club seeking Chairperson for our 40th Anniversary Celebrations

We are very excited to announce that our Club will celebrate its 40th Birthday this season!!!

With this wonderful news, we need your help…
Our Board of Directors is seeking a Club Member to be our “40th Anniversary Celebrations Chair”. This person would lead a small committee that would plan a celebrational day (and/or celebrations throughout the year).
We are also looking for members who would like to sit as a part of that planning committee.
If you are interested, please contact our Club Vice-President Debbie Rhodenhizer at or touch base with our Club Manager as soon as possible!
We have tentatively planned Saturday, March 19th for a day of reflection and fun!
Here are some scenes from the early days of our club:
Sod Turning: Hon. Pat Binns – Minister of Municipal Affairs, David Miles – Village Council, David Leslie – C.M.H.C.
Ribbon Cutting: David Miles, Village of Cornwall, MLA Gordon Lank, Club President Robert Burns

Our 20th anniversary events included an anniversary bonspiel, a juniors bonspiel, a history room with memorabilia from years gone by, a banquet, and a variety concert.

The team of Al MacCormac, Gladys Wright, Sterling MacRae, and Zita Cameron won the anniversary bonspiel:

Another activity was an “old fashioned” variety concert, which wrapped up with a chorus led by coordinators Phyllis Lowther and Miriam MacLean.

Despite the blustery weather, a large crowd was on hand as piper Danny Campbell lead the “Grand March” from the Cornwall Curling Club to the United Church hall for the 20th Anniversary banquet.
