BCC Membership Back Legacy Project With 70% Approval Vote

Wednesday October 9, 2013 saw Brockville Country Club members fill the Golf Lounge to cast their vote related to the proposed BCC 100th Anniversary Legacy Project. Ray Bushfield provided a quick review of the project, answered questions, then Jack LaForte, seconded by Ardis Lindsay, presented the motion. A total of 264 votes were cast with 186 voting YES (70%) and 78 voting NO.
The 100th Anniversary Legacy Project will see the Driving Range and Practice Area upgraded into a 1st class facility. With solid support from the membership, construction can start this fall on a portion of the project. The Legacy Project will be funded by member contributions and special fund raising events. A grant request has also been sent to Canadian Heritage and if successful will enable all aspects of the project to proceed.
Next year, 2014, is the Brockville Country Club's 100th Anniversary.The Anniversary Committee is planning a number of projects and events to celebrate this milestone and to leave a lasting legacy in keeping with the Club's heritage, starting with a New Year's Eve Gala. After all, a 100 year anniversary only comes around once!!
