The Club  continues to host numerous events & bonspiels as part of its philanthropic efforts to help raise funds for charities.

These murals both reflect and remind Club members and visitors the role that curling and local clubs play fostering opportunity, diversity, inclusivity and philanthropy within communities such as Oakville and beyond.
