Saugeen Shores proposed Lamont Sports Park was selected as one of four projects across Canada to vie for a $250,000 prize but it all depends on support numbers.  As of noon on Saturday, the Plex number was at 42,012 votes.

“Something I find remarkable in this show of community support ire the ages of people who are participating,” said Councilor Cheryl Grace.¬† “It has become a real inter-generational¬† endeavour that is wonderful to see.”

 Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker stopped by to       vote and got a helping hand from Councilor and ball                               player, Kristan Shrider
