IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!

The Huron Manufacturing Association (HMA) is inviting all manufacturers, businesses, and supporters to its 2017 Awards of Excellence Gala at the South Huron Recreational Centre on Thursday, November 16, 2017.  Founded in 1998, the HMA recognized the need for greater awareness, community support and further growth of Huron County’s manufacturing sector.  The Awards of Excellence Gala provides a platform to share new product developments, accomplishments, and milestones with peers in the manufacturing community.

“The Awards of Excellence Gala is the right time and place to honour Huron County Manufacturers for all their accomplishments”, said Joan Wood, Gala Coordinator (and local manufacturer).

“We invite you to enjoy a delicious meal, featuring locally produced wine and learn more about the amazing collection of local manufacturers.”

Preceding the Gala, the HMA hosts a Trade Show for attendees to get ‘hands-on’ with products manufactured in the county.  Tickets for the HMA 2017 Awards of Excellence Gala are $45.00.  For more information about the Gala visit the HMA website or call the office (519) 527-0305 and ask for Administrator Lisa Houthuyzen or HMA Director Jan Hawley at 519.525.7677.

The HMA is a unified voice of Huron Manufacturers, who promote industry growth, by facilitating and demonstrating leadership to a strong manufacturing sector, while providing opportunities and celebrating achievements.  To learn more about the HMA visit www.huronmanufacturing.ca

Feeling lucky?

Try your hand at a chance to win big $$$ as the Seaforth Lions Club prepares to launch its newest fundraiser.

Hey Seaforth…..the Ace of Spades is off and running, and the Seaforth Lions Club is offering you a weekly chance to “Catch the Ace” for a potentially big win starting Wednesday, July 5th, 2017. Modeled after the viral fundraising campaign in New Brunswick, “Chase the Ace” has proven to be an outstanding success. Not only does the accumulative jackpot have the potential to reach as much as $30,000, there is also a chance to snag a nice little pot along the way to the big catch.

Here’s how it works. At the beginning of the lottery/raffle a fresh deck of cards is shuffled and placed in individual, unmarked envelopes. The envelopes are then shuffled again and marked with numbers from one to 52. Each week, 1,000 tickets are printed (and hopefully, sold).

Lion Member Cathy Elliott & Catch the Ace Participant Maureen Agar

Players (must be 18 years of age and older) who buy a $5 ticket write their contact information on the stub and then a guess as to which envelope contains the Ace of Spades, which they write at the bottom of the ticket.

Each Wednesday at 7:30 pm, one ticket is drawn at the Seaforth Royal Canadian Legion hall and that ticket receives 20 percent of that week’s accumulated ticket money.  The envelope number on their ticket is then opened and if it contains the Ace of Spades, another 30 percent of the pot goes to the winner. If the draw goes to its full run of 20 weeks and all the tickets are sold that will mean a $30,000 payout!

Once an envelope is opened, it is withdrawn from play, so you can only pick a number from the envelopes remaining in play (one of which still holds the elusive Ace of Spades). In order to be in the weekly draw you must purchase a ticket, as each ticket is eligible only for that week’s draw. You do not have to be present at the draw to win. The draw will conclude at Week 20, and if no one has managed to “Catch the Ace”, a random elimination draw will determine the overall winner of the top prize. There will be no envelope numbers on the tickets in the last draw. Instead, a ticket will be drawn and that ticket will get the lowest numbered envelope. If that envelope doesn’t have the Ace of Spades, we keep drawing tickets until it comes up.

Each weekly draw that sells out guarantees ticket purchasers a 1 in 1000 chance to win $1,000.00, in addition to a 1 in 52 chance to catch the Ace of Spades for an additional accumulated jackpot that starts off at $1,500.00. An excellent gift for birthdays and Father’s Day. Great odds to win money while helping the Seaforth Lions Club help your community!

Tickets for the July 5th draw are available now at Rona, Paget’s Place, and Blooms ‘n’ Rooms, all of which, are located on Main Street, Seaforth or through Lion Cathy Elliott (519-522-1323). After the first draw on July 5th, tickets will also be available weekly, not only at the afore mentioned locations, but at the Seaforth Legion Hall each Wednesday from 4:00 to 7:00 pm.

Good luck everyone!
