An update on the Kraft Hockey Goes On Awards that were going on with that John McNeil (son of Doug McNeil).
He was one of the finalists for his contributions to minor hockey with the Major Atom A Burlington Bulldogs (BLOMHA)
of the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario.
We are so happy to announce that John placed second in Ontario and as a result Burlington Minor Hockey will be receiving
$20,000. We are very proud of John, and thank him for his efforts, contributions and commitment to Burlington and the hockey
program. This is great for minor hockey in Burlington. To all who voted for John a heartfelt thank you.

Bonnie PlaceBy Erin Bowers
As residents of Burlington, we’ve probably all passed by Bonnie Place at one point or another. It’s a little bit hidden away and can be hard to find; located on Claridge Road, near Guelph Line and New Street. The location is fantastic, close to shops, churches, public transit stops and a quick walk to Burlington’s fabulous lakeshore. Sound great? It really is! What’s even better than the amenities and convenient location is the purpose for which it was built.
A Weekend at Camp EnterpriseBy Rafey Sattar,Vidhu Joshi& Michael Kang
It’s not easy to bring a group of teenagers to the edge of their seats, but with these words, Sunny Daljit did just that. As a motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Sunny was just one of the presenters at the 16th annual “Camp Enterprise”. Hosted by the Rotary Clubs of Burlington & Oakville, the weekend long retreat welcomes the brightest students from across the two cities to learn from the very best of Canada’s business community.
