Bondi Resort Blog

Come on into our Blog for a look at the wonderful world we've got to share! With over 240 hectares (600 acres) of wilderness woodlands surrounding the resort, just ten minutes from Algonquin Park, we feature over 400 metres (1200’) of waterfront and beach; boat rentals; summer hiking trails winding through fields and woods; 20 km. of groomed cross country ski trails and snowshoeing in winter; access to nearby snowmobile trails for sledders, and a toboggan hill for the young at heart.

Here's a Roar for the Lion's!

Communities are glued together by volunteers, by community groups that unite.

High on this list would have to be our local Dwight Lion's Club. Today they hosted a Christmas Social at the Community Centre -- a great excuse to get together, enjoy some munchies, visit with friends before we all get too busy with the season, have some fun.

 Five dollars, and a donation to the Food Bank got you in the door...    Of course, there were tickets for the 50/50 draw available, and a door prize to win the centrepiece.  It all goes to great causes.

It was also the occasion for the Club to hand out cheques, from monies raised through their fundraising efforts, to the Huntsville Hospital, the Salvation Army, and the local kids involved in the Me to We trip to China next spring.

The Club raised a LOT of money for all of these causes over the past year. 

They are always on the look-out for new members, by the way. You should come on out and get involved.  After all, that old saw about 'you get out what you put in' is true.  Involvement in community is what makes Community.

While many of the winners of the 50/50 draw were from the area, the big winner came with a 519 phone number -- which just shows that during the summer when the Lion's are out there selling tickets  it's well worthwhile to chip in. The winner this year took home over $500, which will be most welcome at this time of year, we're sure!   (a cautionary note for those of you at Bondi:  be on the lookout for Brian, who has his very effective methods to sell his allotment of tickets! )
Marcy was delighted to win the centrepiece -- we just worry if the table at home is big enough to house it, or if the family will have to peer around and over it to chat over the Christmas turkey!
Thanks to the Dwight Lions (and Lionesses, of course!) for putting on the Social, and for all the work you do for this community all through the year. Long may you Roar!
