Golden Gears Donation to TAMI

March 20, 2017

The Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club held a St. Pattys Day Party on March 11, 2017 at the Matilda Hall.

This was well-attended by over 200 people, who were entertained by the Kitchen Party, a Celtic band.

There were many items up for the Silent and Live Auctions.

The Golden Gears donated an all-expense BBQ for up to 40 persons as an auction item.

This proved so popular that we offered a second BBQ to the next-highest bidder.

In the end, these 2 items added over $2000 to be donated to TAMI (Talking About Mental Illness).




Cheque presentation to Fort McMurray Firefighters

December 9, 2016

Almost $300 was raised from the sale of Iroquois History books over the past few months.

The Golden Gears Club decided to top this amount up to $500 and we will send these funds out the Fort McMurray Firefighters.

Thanks to Jeff Beaupre for organizing and running this effort!

A photo of this presentation is in our slide show section.



Golden Gears Donations

October 17, 2016

It might not feel like Christmas yet, but the Golden Gears have kicked off the season early with donations to several local charities. 

At their October 11 meeting, the club approved donations of $250 each to the Dundas County Food Bank and The South Dundas Christmas Exchange. 

Another donation of the same value was made to the For for All Food Bank in Cardinal. 

The funds represent the proceeds from the 50/50 draw held at the club\\\'s car show and concert on August 28th. 

Club President Henry Swank presents the cheques to Carol Richer [left] of the Christmas Exchange and Amy Jamieson of the Morrisburg branch of the Dundas County Food Bank.

Brinston Park Revitalization - Oct 1

October 2, 2016

As part of the Brinston Park Revitalization celebration, the Committee invited the Golden Gears to put on a display of vehicles.

There was also a display of tractors and various activities for the kids. The Iroquois Firefighters also had their trucks on display.

For food, they had a Pig Roast (on a spit)!

Golden Gears members brought in 15 vehicles for an impressive line-up. A non-member late-comer showed up with a 1941 Hudson survivor car!

We also got to see a Viper up close!

Despite the cloudy day, everyone enjoyed one last opportunity to show off their cars.

The parade started at Noon and wound through the streets of Cardinal with lots of candy being thrown out to the kids!

Afterwards we gathered for a car display at the Legion Park.

Car Show with Eddy & The Stingrays - August 28, 2016

August 30, 2016

The morning started off badly - it poured rain and we all got soaked!

Thankfully, by 08:45 the rain stopped and the sun made an appearance and lasted all day!

The weather no doubt contributed to our lower numbers, but we did have 165 vehicles register with about 40 more who arrived late and did not register.

MP Guy Lauzon and SD Deputy Mayor Jim Locke greeted everyone but kept it short!

There were lots of door prizes available and the 50/50 was won by Wally Fisher.

About 20 trophies were awarded including 2 People\\\\\\\'s Choice this year.

The Hwy 43 Club and the BMR people did a great job setting up the site with music and various booths.

We had 10 vehicles in total which was a good number out of the 80 or so total cars at the show.

There was a BBQ going and there were door prizes and a 50/50 draw.

An enjoyable day chatting and mingling.

A Busy Week in Iroquois

Wow! Lots of activity between June 16 and 18.

Our first cruise-in of the year was a great success. (June 2 was cancelled due to rain)

We had 31 cars on display with a strong contingent from the 43 car club.

Then on the 17th, the Golden Gears gave a tour of Iroquois for the Firefighters wives. We had 22 cars for transportation.

The firefighters had set up stops at points of interest along the way and the ladies enjoyed wine and cheese at the end.

On the 18th, the games began in earnest in the heat and the Iroquois team came out on top.

The Golden Gears set up an information tent near the site and it was well received.
