Bench Talk / Off The Wire

A Pretty Good Monday


By Fred Wallace

Hi, this is Fred Wallace with " Off the Wire ".


Monday was a busy day & a pretty good day from almost every regard.

After work, I had a nice nap followed by a session on the climber at Owen Sound Fitness & Training.

The next stop was the Harry Lumley-Bayshore Community Centre for the " Hockey Fights Cancer " Head Shave & Pony Tail clip.

Over the course of 90 minutes about 20 people either had their hair chalked, shaved or in the case of the ladies had their pony tail clipped.

This was both a fundraiser and an awareness raiser for the upcoming " Hockey Fights Cancer " Ontario Hockey League Game November 2nd between Sarnia and the Owen Sound Attack.

To that end, the Attack partnered with the participants to perform the bulk of the coloring and cuts before giving way to the professionals at Mastercuts.

By the end of the day, in house and online, the day generated more than $ 7,000. It was terrific.

Meanwhile, as the last strand of hair hit the floor in Owen Sound, a jam packed Bruce County Museum watched TSN's James Duthie proclaim that Saugeen Shores won the Kraft-Heinz Project Play campaign which netted the community $ 250,000.

That money will be channelled directly to the Lamont Sports Park and while plans were already in place for the construction and funding of the park, imagine the various options that can now be considered with the extra cash from this promotion.

The reality of our lives in Grey-Bruce, from a sports standpoint certainly, is that we don't end up on major TV networks like TSN..

But Monday, for a beautiful moment, Saugeen Shores was front & center.


I'm Fred Wallace
