Proceeds from the 4th Annual RAM Rodeo donated to Centre Grey Hospital Foundation

Ram Rodeo big cheque presentation

At its July 3rd meeting, Grey Highlands Council authorized the release of the proceeds from the 4th annual Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo to the Centre Grey Hospital Foundation in the amount of $35,173 as part of the Municipality’s continued commitment to the Markdale Hospital.

Members of the Centre Grey Hospital Foundation Board of Directors, several event sponsors, representatives of the RAM Rodeo, and many of the volunteers who made this year’s event another success joined Council at today's cheque presentation.

Grey Highlands Mayor Paul McQueen spoke with pride about the continued impact of this annual rodeo. “The Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo is a tribute to the power of community coming together to make good things happen. Our generous sponsors, our volunteers, and everyone who comes out to enjoy the excitement of the rodeo are what make this event so special and what allows us to continue to contribute to the new Markdale Hospital on your behalf.”

The generosity of the community, through the Centre Grey Health Services Foundation, funds equipment and technological upgrades at Markdale Hospital.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
