Our BCC Members Ringing the Bells for 15+ Years

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.
BCC Bellringing members for the 2013 Christmas season are: Dixie & Annie; Bob Anderson; Pam A & Margaret; Jim Bamford; Mary B & Anne M; Tim Blake; D. Bryer; Maureen Bryer; C. Brady; J. Butt; B & L Campbell; B. Chick; Maureen D & Vivian W; Dave Dargie; R. Davison; Peter Dawson; John Fullarton; Mo Gariepy; C.

  1. The valet was helpful and genuine. The front desk was incredibly nice. Rooms and work out facility were outstanding. Even the people inside the gym were talkative (not in a bad way) but friendly welcoming way! gym sunshine coast
