Family Day in Ingleside Promises Fun … plus a lot of Vroom! Vroom!

INGLESIDE — The Winchester District Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to invite our local communities to the free Ingleside Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. just south of the plaza. A highlight of the day will be a performance by the O.P.P. Golden Helmets Precision Motorcycle Team – one of their only performances in eastern Ontario this summer.

“We are planning a fun-filled day with something for everyone,” notes Cindy Peters, the Foundation’s Manager of Direct Mail & Events. “It’s a great chance to get together with family and friends – and support local health care at the same time.”

Attendees can look forward to kids’ activities including a bouncy castle and crafts, entertainment, a BBQ, a photo booth, a Teddy Bear Care tent staffed by health care providers, and a 50/50 draw. Local vendors and displays include everything from chair massages to jewellery. Check out the event on the WDMH Foundation Facebook page – @WDMHFoundation – to learn more about the events and vendors.

The Golden Helmets will perform at 1 p.m., followed by a meet and greet session with the officers.

The Golden Helmets were formed in 1963. Each year they tour the province giving exhibitions of superb riding skills at fairs, festivals, and parades. The 20-member team, comprised of OPP officers on regular patrol duties, consists of the Ride Master, Commentator, the motorcycle technician, and 17 riders.

“The precision team includes Ivan Lalonde, well-known local OPP officer and avid motorcyclist,” adds Cindy Peters. “Thank you to Ivan for helping to bring the team to our local area.”

There is no admission charge for the Family Fun Day, but donations to the WDMH Foundation would be most appreciated. Donations will be accepted at various vendor booths and throughout the event area.
