C’est lors d’un souper annuel au crabe que le Club du Vieux Poêle a souligné l’apport important de Molson Coors dans le cadre du programme “Molson Coors salue la communauté“, soit une somme de 20,000$ pour la construction d’un nouveau pavillon
L’appui de Molson Coors complémentera la contribution du milieu pour un investissement d’environ 200,000$ pour la construction d’un pavillon permettant les activités en plein air (raquette, ski de fond, motoneige, VTT), et plusieurs autres activités communautaires.
Le Club sert de réseautage permettant des occasions d’affaires pour ses membres et la communauté, en particulier les plus jeunes. Le Club est également un lieu de rencontres de groupes d’étudiants pour des activités de plein air, de même qu’il sert de base d’opération (salle de réunions) à de nombreux clubs sociaux des îles.
Le projet aura des répercussions directes sur plus de 600 personnes, et sur plus de 10,000 indirectement.
LEVONS NOTRE VERRE à ce beau projet et au dynamisme de la communauté lors Îles de la Madeleine!

The Dryden Ball Diamonds Committee has big plans for baseball, and they are recently in the works of getting Phase Three of a four-stage project completed which will see the revamp of the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds Complex in Ontario. The initiative was dubbed “Light Our Ball Diamonds” and involves development of a pavilion, adding lights to the facilities and installing new bleacher systems.
To celebrate the funding announcements, the group held a quick baseball game then shared a beer and held a wonderful party at the complex. The committee is also hosting the Molson Coors “Victory Season” Mixed Slo-Pitch Tournament on June 22nd – 24th in which 16 teams will slug it out for the title.
The $75,000 Molson Coors Community Cheer grant helped fund the development of the lighting systems for all four baseball diamonds and construction of a two-storey pavilion equipped with a viewing deck. Phase Three involves installation of new bleachers which is scheduled to be completed for this summer.
The Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds host local leagues and inter-provincial tournaments, and its facility will also be used as a social hub for other community functions including their annual night cancer walks, concerts and flea markets. Cheers to a wonderful project that will be sure to bring their community closer together through active living!

The Township of Tyendinaga and the Municipality of Tweed have begun work on the South Hastings Trail, a 50-kilometre route that will link their two community recreation centres together! This Community Cheer project was submitted by the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance in collaboration with a variety of local organizations.
Once complete, the trail will be more accessible and allow for many people to enjoy; it’s also one of the biggest tourism opportunities for the county! The system will have access to various roads, the Quinte Conservation land, Trans Canada Trail and link to the existing Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance network – which spans from the Bay of Quinte to Algonquin Park.
Over 100 guests attended the official cheque presentation ceremony, which included members of the community and local associations. The celebrations comprised of an afternoon of food, music and good cheer in recognition of all the hard work the entire community put into cheering on this project and for the work that will be put into seeing its completion.
Grab your gear and get ready to get out there to enjoy Canada’s natural heritage!

A River Runs Through Us, started by the Valleys 2000 committee, is a project with a goal to further develop the outdoor living activity area and hiking trails in Bowmanville Creek Valley of Southern Ontario to allow for fishing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. They were recently presented with $25,000 from Molson Coors Community Cheer at the Volunteer Appreciation Reception!
Their plans for expansion also include the construction of a bridge to connect trail systems along with development of a fish passage. It’s a project that benefits the well-being of both the community and its natural environment, and it’s one that we’re glad to support through Community Cheer.
