The Township of Springwater was pleased to make a donation of $5000 to Hospice Simcoe and a donation of $2000 to Hospice Huronia at the November 1 Council Meeting. 

Hospice Simcoe has been offering compassionate palliative care, improving the quality of life for those living with life-limiting illnesses in the area since 1988. 

Hospice Huronia was established in 1993 and serves the northern portion of Simcoe County. They work to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families facing life threatening illness or bereavement through in-home care services. Hospice Huronia recently announced their plans to build a local 5-bed residential hospice and this donation will assist them in reaching their fundraising goals.

The donations from the Township were funded through the proceeds of the Springwater Swing Golf Tournament.

New Mandate for Community Recreation Associations
The Township of Springwater has assumed responsibility for the operation and funding of Hall Facilities located throughout the Township. Previously a Community Recreation Association responsibility, the Associations will now be able to focus their time, energy and talents on providing recreational activities and providing social and community events for the residents of their community. The Community Recreation Associations may also choose to fundraise for these special projects or events in their local areas.
