Hi everyone,

We are looking for volunteers for the Ontarios for lining up, laying swords, etc. This is our Ontario closed so we will want to put our best foot forward volunteering to ensure the day runs without a hitch.

Please email me [email protected] if you are able to assist and I will forward this on to Andrea McReynolds and Sheryl Joyner.

Thanks so much.

H.D.A. Note: Award Sponsorship Form for the Ontario Closed Highland Dance Championship

Posted on March 26, 2018 at 10:05 AM

Hi Everyone,

Happy Spring! It's that time of year again and we could really use your support. Any amount donated would be very much appreciated by the H.D.A. and our Ontario dancers. Attached you will find the Awards Sponsorship Form for the Ontario Closed Highland Dance Championship which is being held this year for the first time at the beautiful Fleck Dance Theatre at Harbourfront on June 2, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario. The Highland Dancers' Association has been running this full day event for over 45 years and as you can imagine there are many volunteer hours and costs associated with this incredibly special day for our Ontario dancers. We are asking for your help this year by way of donation so that we can continue to provide the beautiful keepsake medals, trophies and of course the highly sought after Ontario Representative ring. This year as you may know we also have the added cost of our fabulous new location.

Any donation would be greatly appreciated and as always recognition of your donation will be provided in the program and a charitable receipt will be provided upon request. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Many thanks,

Heather Liddell-MacInnis
