Cameco Volunteers 2015On June 17th, 2015, Cameco employees came to Iron Bridge in order to beautify the municipal complex and undertake other jobs in the Iron Bridge area.  It was all part of Cameco’s Annual Community Appreciation Day.  Each year Cameco donates the tools and materials, and the 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, tidying the beds next door at the Public Library;  constructing a sandwich board for the Iron Bridge Museum in order to advertise special events at the Museum; tidying the flowerbed at the east side “Welcome to Iron Bridge” sign; and construction of the Community Garden Boxes at the Iron Bridge Recreation Centre (materials supplied by Algoma Public Health).

Planting flowers at municipal officeThe weather was overcast when the team began at 7:30 a.m. but the rain held off and didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of the Cameco volunteers (not even the hungry mosquitoes discouraged them!)  The Cameco team members were Janice Brown, Terry Grexton, Henri Grimard, Kyle Mathieu, Shawna Mathieu, Kris Olsen, Matt Pierre, and Chris Russ.

In previous years, Cameco volunteers have:   re-stained the gazebo at Tally-Ho Park; constructed and stained park benches for the Iron Bridge Historical Museum; 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.
