Once again this year YCC will be holding a toy and food fundraiser in association with the York Region Police Holiday Heroes drive.
We will be collecting non-perishable food and unwrapped toys from November 21st to December 13th and then delivering them to York Regional Police for distribution to families around York Region, supplying them with special gifts and a warm family meal.
Donation boxes are located by the fireplace in the lounge.

The Ontario Trillium Foundation, an agency of the Government of Ontario, has approved our application for funding and awarded us $150,000 towards the cost of upgrading the interior and exterior of our club. These upgrades include the completion of the outside cladding and insulation of the building and a lounge upgrade. The lounge upgrade encompasses upgrades to provide energy improvements for the club.
York Curling Club greatly appreciates and acknowledges the support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation in awarding us this funding. Congratulations to all who have been involved over the years, whose efforts positioned us to be eligible for this funding, and all the work creating the application for this grant.
The work will be planned and completed over the next 12 months and will require strong member support over this time.

With the new curling season upon us, your Board has a request for those members who are truck owners. With the sidewalk along the south wall of the building and parking there as well, could you please not block the walk with the backs of your trucks when you park. It makes it difficult for other members to use the walkway. If you would park your vehicles a little farther out in the spot or in another area (when possible) it would be appreciated!
