The Barrie East End Social encourages the people of our community to enjoy a fun-filled day and support a great local cause. This incredible event attracted over 1000 residents to the Strabane Park last year. The crowd was entertained with local live musicians from Barrie, a YMCA kids' area, a zip line, local vendors and a late night, big screen children's movie under the stars.

Local athlete, Mya Jones, aged 10 has been swimming with the Barrie Trojans since 2010. Mya started with the Trojans in their swim skills program and last year was moved up to their competitive team. Last year was a very successful year for Mya, coming in first in her heat in nearly every race and shaving 144 seconds off of her qualifying time by the end of last year’s season.

Mya is currently swimming at a provincial green level, the second highest level for her age group. Our office has sponsored Mya and the Barrie Trojans Swim Club and hope to assist in the development of their swimmer’s abilities. We wish the Barrie Trojan’s the best of luck in their 2012/2013 swim season.
