A big thank you goes out to our Banquet Cowgirls who put the event together and did a wonderful job of decorating Drums and Flats for the even. Thank you Caryn, Carol, Deb, S.J. and Hazel for a job well done.
Congratulations to our two new members of the Chris Doona Award Winners, Steve Dizig and Mark Rohlehr. Well deserved Gentlemen.
On Thursday evening, the Membership got together for a great cause. Each member brought a toy (and many brought many toys) so that those less fortunate could have a Happy Christmas. They played hard and laughed. Then the majority got together at Sabina’s to celebrate the Holiday Season.
Friday morning, Steve D. delivered an SUV load of toys collected at the event. Very special thanks to Steve for organizing with the Children’s Aid Society of Durham Region and delivering a full load of items, and to Nicole for organizing at the club and messaging our members!
All items were very well received by the team at CAS this morning. They are extremely pleased with our donations which will go directly to children in need, prior to Christmas!

On behalf my partner Terry Bruce, and our amazing group of Pickering Squash Club volunteers, we thank you all so very much for your support of our local food bank.
Results are in and just shy of $14,000.00 was raised to help those less fortunate in our community. We are blessed to have so many like minded individuals wishing to make a difference in our community.
Words simply cannot express the amount of thanks that both Terry and I feel about each and everyone of you.
Have a wonderful rest of the summer and hope to see you all next year at our event on Thursday July 20, 2023.
Kevin Cahill, Chair of the Golf Tournament Terry Bruce, CO-Chair

Now in it’s 17th year, the 2019 Pickering Squash Club Golf Tournament in Support of The St. Paul’s on the Hill Food Bank has hit another Hole-In-One. This year we raised over $9,000 for the Food Bank. That will go directly to buying milk and other staples for those in need and struggling to feed their families.
Over the last 10 years of support to the Food Bank, the tournament has managed to raise well over $100,000.
Thank you to all who participated by playing and a huge thank you to those who gave their time to help run the event. This would not be the success it is without volunteers.
On Saturday, May 4th, about 30 members of The Club and members of Chris Brown’s family, came out to Pontypool to help Chris with cleaning the workshops, stable, garage and grounds around the Farm. Led by Kevin Cahill and Tom Quinn in the fields and barns and Kim Cahill in the Kitchen feeding the group, the jobs were completed quickly. Here are some pics of the day.
This was a great example of how the PSC is not just about Squash but is more about being an extended family. We can be proud of the Club we all love.
