30th Annual Heartwarming Lunch
An annual fundraising event of the Board of Directors, the Heartwarming Lunch has been held the Friday before Valentine’s Day at the Royal Canadian Legion in Goderich. Celebrating 30 years!

11th Annual Last Light Photo Show & Sale
Categories for 2018 were as follows: Weather Event; Colour - Black & White; and the #11 (image of 11, not an item count).
There were 85 photos submitteed with 37 for Weather Event, 31 for Black & White, and 17 for the image of #11. Judging took place on May 2.
Since its inception in 2007, the Last Light Photo Show & Sale continues to gain interest with photo enthusiasts. This initiative was spearheaded by the Huron Camera Club and Jenna Ujiye, in memory of their friend, Sarah Mann. Sarah was a founding member of the Huron Camera Club, employee of the Goderich Signal-Star and supporter of Community Living-Central Huron. She became involved with the Agency as a journalist and photographer covering various events; this led to her to becoming a volunteer. Initially, the Show invited submissions of sunsets or “last light” photos. Submissions were judged and the photos were made available for purchase with proceeds donated to CL-CH.
The event is sponsored by MacEwan & Feagan Insurance Brokers Limited, Lighthouse Money Management and the Goderich Signal-Star.
Congratulations to the 2018 winners:
Weather Event – Pauline McIsaac winner; Honourable Mentions - Pauline McIsaac & Peggy Sloan
Black & White – Peggy Sloan winner; Honourable Mentions - Denny Scott, Maria Nickoley
The image of #11 – Peggy Sloan winner; Honourable Mentions - Bjorn Berg & Barb Storey
All proceeds from this fundraising event are directed to Community Living-Central Huron.

12th Annual Goderich & District Golf Classic
Was held on June 14 & 15, 2018 - Goderich Sunset Golf Club
- Practice Round was held on Thursday, June 14th
- Tournament was held on Friday, June 15th
- Invitations were mailed the beginning of April.
Every year, Community Living-Central Huron teams up with the Goderich Sunset Golf Club to offer a golf tournament. Over two days, participants are offered 18 holes of practice and tournament play with hole in one competitions, dinner, and live and silent auctions.
The proceeds from the first (2007) and second tournaments were put towards the purchase of a wheelchair van for the Agency. In 2008, the funds raised were used to renovate one of Community Living-Central Huron’s residential locations to make it fully accessible. The 4th Annual Goderich & District Golf Classic provided funds to make extensive renovations to the washrooms at the Activity Centre. The Centre now has fully accessible washrooms. Proceeds from the 5th and 6th Annual Tournament were part of a two year commitment to purchase a wheelchair accessible van. The 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th Annual Goderich & District Golf Classic provided funds to purchase another van, parking lot renovations and a donation to the Huron Respite Network. $212,000 has been raised in 10 years.
The Agency is very grateful to the many dedicated supporters of this event. We couldn’t do it without you!
If interested in becoming a sponsor or playing in the tournament, please contact Community Living-Central Huron at 519-524-7362.
