On a beautiful sunny day in June employees from Cameco descended on Iron Bridge in a flurry of activity in order to beautify the parks and municipal complex. It was all part of Cameco’s Annual Community Appreciation Day. Each year Cameco donates the tools and materials, and its employees, many of whom live in Huron Shores, donate their time to carry out refurbishment and beautification projects in the Municipality and in the Town of Blind River.
This year’s activities included planting flowers at the municipal complex; re-staining the gazebo and benches at Tally Ho Park; constructing and staining new benches for the Iron Bridge Historical Museum; and building trolley carts for the storage and transport of tables located at the Iron Bridge Arena. In previous years the volunteers have also built picnic tables for various parks, and repaired the change rooms at Beharriell Park on Lake Huron, often working in the rain. The Council and residents of Huron Shores would like to thank Cameco and its employees for once again demonstrating their generosity and community spirit. The Cameco volunteers are: Janice Brown, Steve Pierre, Carol Smith, Emily Brown, Brian Dougherty, Terry Grexton, Kyle Mathieu, Norma Mathieu, Kris Olsen, Matt Pierre, Chris Russ, Lyle Sayers and Miranda Smith.
