Spring Events update Tuesday, May 28, 2013
Volunteers Needed!

Sensational Elora is extremely proud of all that we have accomplished during our first five years. In particular we take great pride in more than $55,000 we have raised to combat hunger and poverty in our community.
We plan to continue this work but, it doesn't happen without a lot of good volunteers willing to dedicate their time to the many events and initiatives.
Government funding that helped us hire full time help in the past has dried up. We are now 100% volunteer and we need your help.
Please go the volunteer page of our website: ( to check out some of the volunteer positions available - even a small amount of your time would be very much appreciated. At the moment, we need volunteers to help us organize and run the Sensational Race, August 17th.
Thank you for considering spending some of your valuable free time helping Sensational Elora raise funds in aid of our community.

Fabulous Fergus Pub Night
April 25, 2013
Once again, the pubs of Fergus proved to be a popular venue for a Sensational Elora event. We want to thank to thank management, staff and chefs at The Breadalbane Fergusson Room, O'Briens Tap House, The Goofie Newfie Bar & Grill and Brewhouse On The Grand for creating a wonderful menu for the evening and being great hosts for our guests.
We would also like to thank Older Voices as well as Pipers Neil MacBeth and Scott Farlinger for entertaining between venues and, as always, thank you to Bill Longshaw for photography.
Thank you to our event sponsor:
