Cheque

Hub Staff

Having set sail in their new vessel, Captain Wayne Sparrow and his crew arrived at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in Southampton June 25. This small group of pirates were not there to pillage and plunder but rather to receive a welcome donation from Bruce Telecom towards the eighth annual Marine Heritage Festival, which will run July 27 to 29.

On behalf of Bruce Telecom who is a major sponsor of the event, Marketing and Event Assistant Amy Cresswell presented Festival representatives with a cheque for $2,000, funds that will go in support of the much loved cardboard boat races, held at Southampton’s Pioneer Park, 70 Front Street, as well as the Children’s Gold Hunt.
