Coming at you with grant presentation #️⃣3️⃣!!

If a rink is a gather place in the winter…a golf course could be said to be that place in the summer months!

⛳️ Killarney Lakeside Golf Course truly is the “hidden jewel of the south”! ⛳️ This beautiful 18 hole course has been in operation for over 100 years & draws copious amounts of people to our community whether for the day or weekend! A fresh look at the clubhouse this season with more upgrades to come…this one to the pump house & irrigating system. Killarney Foundation is proud to support this project with a $40,000 donation towards it.

More granting goodness!!! 💰💰💰

Board member Matt Nichol presents Shamrock Centre General Manager, Liana Smith with $40,000 towards the purchase of a new Electric Zamboni!! 🥅⛸🏒

This is a two part grant, with an additional $40,000 pledge for Spring 2023 as well, for a total of $80,000 towards this exciting UPGRADE!! The rink in any small community becomes a hub of activity for the winter & our Shamrock Centre is no different! With hockey, figure skating, curling, bowling, pickle ball, the fitness centre…there’s so many options for our community year round. The Killarney Foundation is proud to work with them to help keep our facility rolling!! 🚐🍀

To say the Shamrock Centre has been busy since restrictions eased would be a massive understatement!! 🍀🍀🍀
