Autumn is here and we’re kicking it off in grand style with events that offer something for everyone! Some of these events have become annual community favourites; some are brand new. All are in support of our Strong Kids campaign, which raises money to ensure that everyone can access Y programs regardless of their financial circumstances. You can follow our events on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or on our event page.
Wednesday Community Lunches
October 2 to December 9
Our popular Wednesday lunches are back, beginning this week when Margie Storrier and friends will be serving up chili, salad and rolls with dessert for $7! Not only is this a great deal, but also raises money for Brockville Y’s Strong Kids campaign. You may eat in or take out. To stay in tune with the weekly menu follow us on Facebook or Twitter (links below) or bookmark our events webpage.
October 16 to 19
Who doesn’t love an auction? Drop by the Y and bid on one of hundreds of silent auction items between October 16 and noon on October 19. Auction items are pouring in and we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want to take home.
Firetruck Pull Activities
9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Get your team together or join one of ours and see if you are strong enough to pull a firetruck at our annual event in support of Strong Kids. Activities abound with a car pull for kids under 16, a strong lift event and a BBQ lunch. Cost: $45 pp for the firetruck pull with a partial tax receipt issued, and $5 pp for the car pull. Fundraising is encouraged. For more information or to register a team, please contact me.

Join us on October 23 for another paint night. This time, we’ll be painting sunflowers using watercolours. If you’ve joined us for a previous paint night, you’ll know just how much fun we have! Cost is $40 with a partial tax receipt issued. Supplies are provided. Please contact me for information and to register.
