On March 28, Mike Pitre, Coordinator of Special Olympics Ottawa, presented a plaque to the City View Curling Club for its support of Special Olympics Curling since 1999.  Club President, Ray Dinelle, accepted the plaque on behalf of the Club.
Club members were responsible for starting Special Olympics curling at City View fifteen years ago and members have volunteered as coaches ever since.  Just as important has been the club’s financial support.  It has always donated ice time on Friday afternoons for the team to hold its practices and members have helped cover some team expenses.  
Athletes and family members were on hand to say "Thank You" to City View and its volunteer coaches.
