Two veteran businesses deliver for Lamont Sports Park Campaign

Two companies with deep roots in the community have brought in the runs by bringing in the funds.

The owners of Port Elgin’s Tim Horton’s franchise and the owners of Nicol Insurance have each made Two-Run Home Run donations of $20,000 to the Lamont Sports Park Illuminating Dreams Campaign. Those donations come as the campaign expands its public fundraising campaign.

“These long-serving members of our business community have seen how the Town has grown”, says Campaign Co-Chair Rob Stanley. “They recognize the need for inclusive spaces like the Lamont Sports Park where residents can enjoy healthy lifestyles.”

“My wife Linda and I are more than pleased to contribute to the Lamont Sports Park fundraising program”, says Tim Hortons franchise owner Dave Falconer. “Saugeen Shores has always supported Tim Hortons and we wanted to give back to the community where we live, work and play.”

Tim Nicol, CEO of Nicol Insurance, also spoke about his long relationship with the community: “We are very grateful to have the support of the places where we live and work, and with that comes a responsibility to give that support back. We are proud to be part of such a great project that will benefit so many families in Saugeen Shores for generations to come.”

The donations entitle both companies to banner-hanging rights at the park for 10 years; their names will also go up on the Park’s Lifetime Donor Board.

The fundraising campaign seeks to raise monies for the construction of the Lamont Sports Park Phase 2.  This includes two youth baseball diamonds, and an accessible playground. The new construction will add to the four baseball diamonds built in Phase 1.
