The Township of Chatsworth and District Minor hockey is pleased to be the joint recipient of the 2013 Ben Morris Memorial Fund by Community Foundation Grey Bruce

The Ben Morris Memorial Endowed fund was set up in 2011 by his brother, Percy Morris, along with 18 nieces & nephews following Mr. Morris’ death. The Morris family grew up in the Chatsworth area and it is fitting that the earned income from this fund will help sports in this area.

The Township of Chatsworth & District Minor Hockey along with other youth sports groups operating in Chatsworth area all benefit from the Ben Morris Memorial Endowment Fund.

Township of Georgian Bluffs
Just a few hours from major Ontario cities, Georgian Bluffs is a collection of communities stretching north from Chatsworth to just south of Wiarton. Copper Kettle, Cobble Beach, Slough of Despond, Big Bay, Oxenden, Balmy Beach… these are just some of the names that paint a picture of the Georgian Bluffs canvas along the Georgian Bay Coastal Route. We have the natural beauty of waterfalls, the Niagara Escarpment and the blue waters of Georgian Bay just to mention a few of our natural amenities. We are a township for all seasons!
Township of Chatsworth
Essentially a rural community, the Township of Chatsworth takes its flavour from the farmlands and forests surrounding it. We welcome visitors to stop and visit as you drive through central Grey County. Amalgamated January 1, 2000, the Township of Chatsworth is made up of the former Townships of Holland and Sullivan and the Village of Chatsworth. The Township population is approximately 8,000 in an area of 260 square miles. Agriculture is the most predominant industry in the Township. There are also a significant number of sawmills in the township, many operated by the Amish community. Tourism and recreation are a growing industry. The Niagara Escarpment, 6 county forests, numerous conservation areas, inland lakes and major rivers provide plenty of year round activities including hiking, biking, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing.
