News from the Deep South in the Windsor/Essex area of Ontario. A couple weeks ago Molson Coors Canada was the proud beer sponsor of the International Dragon Boats for the Cure event held yearly at Tecumseh’s Waterfront Park. Over 150 teams of 20 rowers paddled to raise funds for local hospitals to fight cancer. The Festival has donated over $1.3 Million since it began 7 years ago!
Molson’s sales rep for the area was also on hand to present a $5,000 donation from the Molson Coors Donations Fund which supported the construction of a Memorial Dragon (above) in Tecumseh’s Memorial Park.
Festival Organizers Beth Noakes and Gerry Orum with Molson Coors Canada territory rep Walter Hanson.
Total funds raised from this year’s festival are still being tallied. Will update when we get the numbers. Cheers!

C’est avec beaucoup d’honneur que j’ai accepté, au nom de Molson Coors, la présidence d’honneur des Mardis cyclistes de Lachine présenté par Saputo, pour la saison estivale 2010.
What an honor it is for me to represent Molson Coors as Honorary President of “Mardis cyclistes de Lachine”, a weekly competition to be deployed in the heart of Lachine, every Tuesday of the 2010 Summer (with the exception of July 20). I invite members of the population to enjoy and appreciate with their families and friends, one or more of the 10 races to take place within the next couple of months. What a great team surrounding the President-Founder of the event, Mr. Tino Joseph Rossi, since 1978. An event not to be missed! The finale will take place on Tuesday, August 17 … I am looking forward to enjoying the event, along with one of our cold Molson Coors !!! A Molson M perhaps ?!
Une compétition d’envergure qui se déroule au coeur de Lachine, tous les mardis, à compter du mardi 8 juin et ce, jusqu’au mardi 17 août, date de la grande finale (exception, le mardi 20 juillet où il y aura pause).
En qualité de présidente d’honneur, j’invite tous ceux et celles qui ont envie, comme 80,000 autres spectateurs annuellement, d’assister à cet événement rassembleur pour la famille, les amis et la population. Cette présentation des Mardis cyclistes de Lachine a été fondée par un homme d’exception et de grande passion, M. Tino Joseph Rossi.
Un événement spectaculaire arrosée d’un excellent produit Molson Coors … peut-être une Molson M?

As this beautiful Sunday of the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend unfolds, (in Toronto that is…I know northwestern Ontario has had snow…no doubt they are enjoying a warm fire and a good magazine, book or clearing of emails…the west looks pretty chilly and the east still above zero with their autumn Maritime weather) it is great to raise a glass to all that we have to be thankful for. As families, friends, neighbors and acquaintances gather for turkey and trimmings, and a nice cold glass of beer (lots to choose from in the Molson Coors portfolio folks) we can raise a glass to our country Canada, it’s people and the multitude and diverse communities and cultures that it represents. Its also a time of celebration as is sure the case to be at the Kitchener Waterloo Oktoberfest this weekend. It is just one of the multi cultural events that celebrates heritage from another land but brings it home to Canada as we celebrate together as Canadians in our cultural mosaic. Let us also remember on this weekend those who are less fortunate and who can use a hand out or a hand up to make their day a little more comfortable. I’m mindful of the challenges that food banks across the country face in times of economic difficulty. We can all play a part by making a donation to our local foodbanks. So many can be helped if we channel our efforts this way. Thanks for helping to make a difference for someone in need.
Happy Thanksgiving Canada from all of us at Molson Coors Canada. @MolsonFerg
