Brockville Country Club members have been performing as "Bellringers" for the Salvation Army Christmas-time Kettle Program for the last 15+ years. The location over these years for the BCC kettle has been the uptown LCBO. And when you consider that this one kettle "manned" by our BCC member-volunteers brings in over 25% of the total Christmas Kettle contributions; you can understand the good-cheer being brought by our members.
The BCC Bellringer program has been coordinated over the last many years by Ross Henniger, with help from John Thompson and Maureen Darby. Ross indicates the "long-timers" who got the BCC program started and spent many hours out in the winter weather (yup, they are now inside the foyer) are John Thompson, Jack Butt, Doug Peacock, Henry Horbay). Ross stated that the BCC LCBO kettle over the past 4 years has brought in $98,000.00.
That is 74 Brockville Country Club members helping out from Nov 15th until Dec 24th to enable some Christmas Cheer to be brought to Brockville and area. CONGRATULATIONS Ross Henniger and team for your dedication to the Salvation Army's Kettle Program. And from all members of the BCC, a very Merry Christmas.
