The Highland Park Lawn Bowling Club is a self-funded, non-profit organization that relies on membership fees, fundraising activities, and donations for support. The club, founded in 1914 and continuously operated since that time, is run by a dedicated core of members. These members perform the bulk of the maintenance for the clubhouse and property.
Over the years, this has resulted in a facility that now falls short of the expected standards. In addition, our present greens maintenance equipment is rapidly approaching the end of its serviceable life and needs replacement.
This project’s objective is:
a) a renovated facility that meets today’s building code and permit greater community involvement in both social and recreational sport activity
b) new greens equipment that will allow our members to maintain our playing surface
The proceeds from this fundraising will be
used for the following cause(s):
The proceeds from this fundraising will be used for the:
a) Renovation of the clubhouse, including, as necessary, site preparation, partial demolition of the existing facility, municipal fees, building renovation, project management and professional services
b) Purchase of new roller, aerator, and mower
How this project will assist in promoting
or developing amateur sport on a national
The current clubhouse is over 55 years old. With the current facility’s age and condition, a major renovation on the existing facility is needed.
The present greens equipment is unreliable, difficult to use, and in the case of the roller – potentially unsafe.
A renovated clubhouse and new greens equipment will enable the club to increase its membership. This project will ensure that the club will continue to exist into the distant future, and that all members of the club from “Pee Wees” to juniors to seniors, plus the many visitors, will be able to continue to enjoy lawn bowling as a recreational sport and allow our more competitive lawn bowlers the ability to improve their skills and compete both provincially and nationally.
