The Gauthier family, owners of the store, have donated $1,000 toward the after-cycle luncheon and will also be providing a flatbed truck to act as a stage for the entertainment.

 The Gran Fondo Lake Huron cycling event features four scenice routes of varying lengths of 30km, 70km, 110km and 160km that all start in Southampton.  It’s a chance to take in some of the most scenic vistas along with Lake Huron shoreline from the advantage of a bicycle.

The event is a major fundraiser for Saugeen Memorial Hospital equipment with every dollar raised going to the goal of $150,000.  “Everything else to do with the race is being graciously covered by our many sponsors,” says Sally Kidson, Executive Director of the Hospital Foundation.
