Please click the photo above to take a minute to review a one minute video taken from my flying camera (drone) above Lakeshore Drive in Morrisburg. It gives a 360 degree view.
Then we encourage you to reflect on what a beautiful community we live it. However .... we must also acknowledge that there are quite a few of our neighbours who need help and support. 100 Men Who Care in South Dundas is a good, quick & easy way for anyone to do this!
If you are not a member already, please join us on November 6 at the Morrisburg Legion. AND .... if you can persuade one or two of your friends and neighbours to join you GREAT! Please go to the JOIN HERE Page. Our objective this year is to have 200 members attend on November 6 - this will allow us to give $20,000 to support excellent projects to help our community.
Our 2019 Event is now confirmed for
Wednesday November 6th at the Morrisburg Legion.
PLEASE PUT IT IN YOUR CALENDAR!
We are actively searching for deserving projects that wish to be considered for funding at our 6 November, 2019 Event. If you have a charitable project that you believe should be considered for this year's event, or if you hear of a community initiative that you believe deserves our support, then please see our PROJECTS Page.

100 Men of South Dundas (really 100 plus!) is a group of men in South Dundas who care about our community and are devoted about contributing to its health and vitality. Each year, we will meet for about one hundred minutes and make a $100 donation to a local deserving project voted on by the members.
$100 x 100 men = $10,000 per year invested in making South Dundas an even better place in which to live!
Now there’s a winning formula! Just think of the difference it could make to our many deserving local causes. It couldn’t be more simple, more fun, or have a more powerful effect, and you can be a part of it.

You want to contribute to worthy causes in your community but aren’t sure how to fit volunteering into your schedule;
You can commit to about one hundred minutes every year;
You want 100% of your money to go directly to a well deserving local project;
You want your $100 donation to be part of a larger amount that can create powerful changes in your community.

Each member commits to donating $100 to the project that wins the most votes. There may be second and third prize winners if we have a surplus funds.
The Morrisburg Legion has generously offered to host the evening this year.
Each contending project will have three minutes to present their case to the voters.
There will be one vote - with each member selecting their favoured project.
Each member will be given a ballot with the names of all nominated projects.
Every member will write a cheque for $100 to the organization whose project receives the most votes (even if that is not a personal first choice).
Members will receive a tax receipt directly from the winning organization.
Members who are unable to attend the meeting are invited to give their cheque to another member to deliver on his behalf.
The Projects under consideration must serve South Dundas and their sponsoring organization must provide individual tax receipts directly to contributing members.
The selected organization must agree not to use member information for further solicitation purposes, or give it out to any third parties except for tax purposes.
If you have an idea for a project that you believe will enhance our community, it may be time to get organized. It's amazing what you can accomplish with an idea, a few like-minded people and a bit of elbow grease!
