Phase 1 of the Lamont Sports Park project is already complete with four lit baseball diamonds to be ready for play in the spring of 2023, as well as a sun shelter, while Phase 2 will see the construction of an additional two diamonds and an accessible playground.

“The Bruce Power Supplier Sponsorship Program creates a collaborative environment for supplier partners to get involved with projects that enrich communities,” said Mike Rencheck, Bruce Power’s President and CEO. “Many of the employees live and work in these communities and appreciate having such supportive companies and communities.”

“Saugeen Shores is proud to be home to many outstanding nuclear supplier companies and their employees,” said Saugeen Shores Mayor Luke Charbonneau. “This incredible contribution to the Lamont Sports Park is a strong demonstration of their collective commitment to our community.”

“This contribution will allow us to construct a 200 seat pavilion which will have broad use for large community gatherings,” said Mike Myatt, campaign co-chair and Town of Saugeen Shores Vice Deputy Mayor. “We thank the Suppliers for this wonderful donation to our fundraising campaign.”

The Bruce Power Supplier Sponsorship Program aligns the company’s vendor partners with local, provincial and national non-profit organizations that focus on Indigenous youth, health and wellness organizations, Canadian veterans and local Legions, community initiatives, food banks, and hospital foundations. Forty suppliers are supporting the program in 2022, which donates about $600,000 to these initiatives annually.
