GREETINGS FROM THE MAYOR

Ken Ferguson

Tweety Petey’s BIG Fall-Winter Adventure Tweety Petey wants you to be a role model for your family and lead a healthy lifestyle! A healthy lifestyle includes healthy eating, daily physical activity, being sun safe, being tobacco free and regular cancer screening. Did you know that physical activity benefits mental health, body image and weight, physical health, school performance and skill development for children? Did you also know that most Canadians eat fewer than five servings of vegetables & fruit daily, which is less than Canada’s Food Guide recommendations? Research now shows you don't have to run a marathon to enjoy the benefits of physical activity and improve your health. All you have to do is pick an activity you enjoy and "get moving" a little each day. The Clearview Culture and Recreation Guide offers a wide range of events and activities to keep Clearview residents active and healthy this spring and summer. Look for the Tweety Petey messages throughout the guide for helpful tips for optimal health and well-being.

Spring has sprung, so it’s time to get off the couch and discover something new!!

NOTE: Statistics were compiled by the Simcoe-Muskoka District Health Unit www.clearview.ca • fall/winter 2013/14 • 3

It is common to see curling stones now being delivered from an upright position using a stick that is slipped over the stone’s handle. This allows participation by people who may have some physical limitation or those deciding to take up curling later in life. Using the stick removes the need to master the more familiar slide delivery. For additional information on curling with a stick visit www.stickcurling.ca

The Stayner Curling Club is available to rent year-round. For more information or to book the facility, call Ken Russwurm at 705-428-2875.

SNOWMOBILING

Get out and enjoy winter’s beauty with thousands of other snowmobilers in Ontario on one of the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Club’s many trails crisscrossing the Township. Trail users are required to display a valid snowmobile permit that entitles you to enter and travel any open OFSC Prescribed Trail at any time during the winter, as often as you wish. Where Do My Permit Dollars Go? Permits generate the revenues OFSC clubs need to maintain snowmobile trails and buy groomers. They are the only source of funding for trail operations. To ensure that your permit money goes to the OFSC district whose trails you ride most, it is important to buy your permit from a club in that district. Where Can I Purchase My Permit? Permits are available at J&R Cycle, JT’s Snowmobile Repair, as well as at numerous outlets in Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Stayner and New Lowell. Check the Mid-Ontario Snowmobile Trails website for a full listing. www.most.on.ca

SEASONAL PERMIT 3 DAY PERMIT 7 DAY PERMIT CLASSIC PERMIT

$210 if purchased by Dec 1 $260 after Dec 1 $100 $140 $130 - Model year 1998 or older

EVENTS Numerous events such as Snowarama for Easter Seals Kids, Poker rides, and dances are hosted by your local snowmobile club throughout the winter. A full listing by date can be found at www.most.on.ca/events.

WINTERAMA

Celebrating 38 years of the “GREATEST LITTLE SHOW ON SNOW” January 31 – February 2

This year Sunnidale Winterama will be celebrating its 38th year “Under the Big Top”. Sunnidale Winterama is organized by a committee of local community members who plan year-round for a weekend of fun to beat the winter blues. Many of our community partners volunteer during the weekend to ensure fun is had by all. Some of the crowd’s favourite events will be returning including the Fireworks Display, Spaghetti Supper, Saturday Parade, Games at the Park and Variety Night back by popular demand. We are excited to announce plans are underway for a new addition to the festivities, a Ball Hockey Tournament. All proceeds raised over the weekend go towards capital improvement projects in what was formerly known as the Township of Sunnidale. To apply for assistance for your next project, contact Jessica Co’Dyre, Chair, at 705-424-0395.

MUSIC IN THE “PARC” Photos/Story by: Melanie Vollick, Write Way Communications

On Thursday, July 11th, locals gathered to celebrate the official Launch Party for the Clearview PARC Project at Station in the Park in Stayner. In March of this year, The Ontario Trillium Foundation approved a $315,800 grant over a four-year program. The foundation was looking for something in the field of the environment and will now work collaboratively with the Clearview PARC Project and six different local community organizations. The Clearview PARC project is a multiple partner, four-year program, funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation with a focus on increasing community engagement, particularly amongst youth, building capacity within the volunteer sector and establishing more efficient, greener practices within the community. The organizations involved include Clearview Township, The Stayner Chamber of Commerce, The Clearview-Stayner Food Bank, The Stayner Community Garden [which grows produce for the food bank], The Stayner Garden Club [formerly The Stayner Horticultural Society] and The Door Youth Centre, a local youth drop-in centre. These local community groups lack volunteers and sufficient funding; however, with the help of the Trillium Foundation grant, the groups are now able to hire college or university students to help with various projects around the community. Funds will also go toward capital purchases over the four-year period to assist these organizations in achieving their objectives. Several different capital improvements will be covered by the funding including a new commercial refrigerator/freezer for the Food Bank, a new shed and tractor for the Community Garden, improvements to Gazebo Park and

Clearview PARC students XXXXX and XXXXX with Deputy Mayor Alicia Savage. a new tourism kiosk for the Chamber of Commerce. Shane Sargant, Clearview’s Community, Culture and Recreation Coordinator, presented the Trillium award followed by speeches by the Deputy Mayor, Alicia Savage, the PARC girls and dedicated volunteer of the Food Bank, Larry Culham. As well, there was excellent representation with six council members present. Savage recognized members of the steering community, which included Earl Hoover, Larry Culham, Wendy Jeffries, Jen Gerrior and Judy Hutton as well as the staff involved with the project. “The real goal of this entire project is to build capacity within these

organizations, to build partnerships among them and others, to share resources and to do all of this so that the work completed in the next fouryears far outlasts the funding that we have received and we have a special focus on volunteer and youth engagement,” says Savage. The PARC project and Chamber of Commerce teamed up in order to serve free homemade ice cream by Ardene’s Chocolates as well as cake. Children enjoyed making Summer Snow Globes at the activity tent during the event and the rockin’ classic music by the band, The Beet n Boomers, kept toes a tappin’. Many thanks to sponsors, TD Canada Trust, The Stayner Sun and Leslie Kinnear for making the event a success. See you out in the community!
