Community Grant Program - Update
Stix n Pix was very pleased to receive 8 applications to the newly announced Community Grant Program.

The committee was very inspired by the diversity of the applications. In considering all applications, the committee used the following criteria:  

1) Does the application eliminate financial barriers for Norfolk families in the areas of music or hockey participation?
2) Does the focus of the request involve Norfolk children
3) Is the application complete in all the information
4) What is the impact of the program for Norfolk children     

The committee is very pleased to announce that we will be supporting a funding request from St Bernard of Clairvaux School for their playground.

The committee feels that this project will impact many children in the years to come to enjoy the benefits of physical exercise and out door play.

All applications have received direct feed back on the merits of their applications.

Stix n’ Pix will continue to accept applications to the grant program in 2020.

Thank-you - Stix n Pix Executive

Otter Creek Golf Club - Otterville
The Otter Creek Golf Club is located in the rural farm community of Otterville, Ontario, a short 20 minute drive from Woodstock. Designed by renowned Canadian golf course architect Dick Kirkpatrick, Otter Creek opened its doors to the public on July 1, 2008. Encompassing 300 acres and carved through the wooded valleys of Otter, Cedar and Spittler Creeks, the golf course meanders cleverly over former farmer's fields and tobacco lands. Measuring just over 7,100 yards and featuring six sets of tees, Otter Creek was designed to challenge players of all skill levels. From the forward tees, minimal forced carries make the golf course extremely playable for those new to the game. Construction of our rustic 5,000-square-foot clubhouse and 1,500-square-foot patio was completed in 2010. Open to the public, both the clubhouse and patio offer stunning views of the 18th hole as it carves through the wooded creek valley. Otter Creek is the ideal venue for any tournament or corporate event. To book a tee time, call us at 519-879-9800.
