In the Community
The seventh Annual Hawthorne Cup was once again, a success with over two hundred golfers converged on the Saugeen Golf Club in Port Elgin and Ainsdale Golf Course in Kincardine to vie for the coveted Hawthorne Cup. One of the highlights of the tournament each year is the putting contest where individual golfers compete for the highest score to win an iPad mini. This year, proceeds from this contest went to Community Living for their respective regions. Representatives from Community Living oversee the putting contest and cheer on participants throughout the day. As a result $1,500 was split between Kincardine and Owen Sound and District Community Living.

TIVERTON, ON – August 11, 2015 – One-hundred post-secondary school students have received a $500 boost for their education from Bruce Power.
Recipients of the annual Bruce Power Scholarship were recognized at a breakfast on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at the Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre. Duncan Hawthorne, Bruce Power’s President and CEO, presented those in attendance with their certificates and $500 during the event.
“Bruce Power is proud to play a role in the post-secondary education of these impressive students from Bruce, Grey and Huron counties,” Hawthorne said. “Our Scholarship Committee had a very difficult job of picking only 100 winners from an unbelievable crop of over 300 applicants.”
The selection committee was comprised of 10 Bruce Power employees from a variety of departments and levels. The applications were reviewed with system-generated reference numbers to remove any name, location or other potential biases, and all personal information was removed to ensure anonymity.
