Another successful Sport and Leisure Expo has come and gone. The event on Wednesday September 4 had 30 organizations present to share information about programs, volunteer opportunities and services. Organizations were given the opportunity to make a donation toward helping give all kids a chance to be involved in recreation. A donation of $365 was collected and will go toward Canadian Tire Jumpstart, KidSport and Chance 2 Grow. Information on all of these programs can be found at mordenmb.com/recreation-funding. If you have extra funds at this time of year, consider making a donation to help kids in sport and recreation. It helps all kids access excellent programming. Donation information can be found online.

If you missed the Sport and Leisure expo there are still opportunities to register as long as spaces allow. See a full list of local sport and recreation opportunities and mordenmb.com/sports-groups.
