Hawkesbury raises $3,500 for Hawkesbury Figure Skating Club

Members of the Hawkesbury Figure Skating Club received a donation from the Town of Hawkesbury on November 18.

On June 8, the Town of Hawkesbury held its annual golf tournament to raise funds for the Hawkesbury Figure Skating Club; the event raised $3,500. On November 18, municipal councillors Yves Paquette, former councillor Johanne Portelance, councillors André Chamaillard and Robert Lefebvre presented the funds to the club.

The Hawkesbury Figure Skating Club is in its 43rd year. Built under Skate Canada’s requirements, the club has had more than 100 members to date. The club offers a variety of programs taught by certified professional coaches from the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). This sport offers opportunities to develop fundamental figure skating skills in the areas of ice dance, skating skills, free skate and interpretive skating.

Without the support of volunteers, coaches and the executive committee, this club would not exist. These people give generously of their time so that our skaters can live their passion and love for the sport. The club thanks volunteers, parents, the Town of Hawkesbury and all those who support the club directly or indirectly.
