WOAA Honour Awards
The Western Ontario Athletic Association held their 70th Annual General Meeting on Tuesday September 16 at the WOAA office and presented W.O.A.A. Honour Awards

The O.M. Mike Weichel trophy is an award presented annually by the W.O.A.A. The trophy donated in 1953 by Mr. Mike Weichel of Elmira who was a well known sports enthusiast throughout the Western Ontario region.  In presenting the trophy to the W.O.A.A. it was his desire to ensure those persons in this area be recognized and rewarded for their outstanding efforts in minor sports.   

Don & Vonnie Crawford were honoured to be presented the Mike Weichel Award for 2014 for involvement in both Minor Hockey and Minor Softball in the area.

In other WOAA Awards, the President's Award went to Doug Walker from Belgrave and the Don "Boom" Gravett Memorial Bursary Award went to Tom Fischer from Teeswater.

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.
