HUNTSVILLE - Two local businesses have stepped up to assist a major event in the community, which is happening late next month.

Both sponsored the 2010 Ontario Winter Youth Games and the 2012 Ontario ParaSport Winter Games, held in Huntsville.
Deerhurst is the games’ major accommodation provider, and will be hosting the opening and closing ceremonies in the resort’s new Legacy Hall. Both events will be for all 1,000 participants
The New Bickley Ford is providing games’ staff with a Ford Flex for promotional purposes, and the use of trucks to set up and move equipment at games time, as well as providing mini-vans for shuttle service

Simply put, our community is made better because of them.”
More than 1,000 athletes, officials and fans are expected to come here Feb. 26 to 28 for the provincial multi-sport championship.
