Covid-19 Return to hockey updates and AGM

On June 3, 2020, the SMMHA Board of Directors met for our second time virtually (via Zoom Cloud Meetings) ensuring the continued business operations of the South Muskoka Minor Hockey Association. Rest assured, the Association is in good health. We hope that each of you are doing well and staying healthy and safe during these unprecedented times.

 An important part of our business operations is our Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is normally held in May or early June. Given the COVID-19 Pandemic, the likelihood of holding our AGM at the usual time is not looking promising. Section 125 and 293 of the Ontario Corporations Act, requires the AGM to be held no later than 15 months after the previous AGM and allows us to hold meetings virtually. On March 30, 2020, the Ontario government issued a temporary emergency order, pursuant to the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act, to provide flexibility in calling and holding annual meetings (the “Emergency Order”). In this regard, the Emergency Order provides relief to all Ontario not-for-profit corporations by enabling them to host virtual meetings and to extend the timeframe by which their association must hold its AGM to 90 days after the Emergency Order is terminated by the Ontario government. With this in mind, during the June 3, 2020 SMMHA  Board of Directors meeting, it was discussed and decided that because the AGM is the most important meeting of the membership, that it would be best for all members to hold the AGM virtually in July to continue proactively planning for the future season in a safe environment for all participants.   Please continue to watch the SMMHA Web Site and Social Media feeds for announcements regarding our AGM. Until the AGM is held, the current and interim Board of Directors will remain in place and will continue to look after the South Muskoka Minor Hockey Association with the same passion they always have.   A few updates last week: Hockey Canada issued a statement on the return to hockey and the framework moving forward.  
The Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) will be releasing a statement on Monday June 8th regarding the provinces response to Hockey Canada’s framework:  

Please continue to follow the OMHA’s COVID-19 portal for current updates:   Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me by email at [email protected]

Wash your hands, enjoy the weather and Go Bears Go!

Thank you,

Tim Hortons
The Story of Tim Hortons. The Tim Hortons chain was founded in 1964 in Hamilton, Ontario. The chain's focus on top quality, always fresh product, value, great service and community leadership has allowed it to grow into the largest quick service restaurant chain in Canada specializing in always fresh coffee, baked goods and homestyle lunches. The first Tim Hortons restaurants offered only two products - coffee and donuts. The selection of donuts to enjoy was highlighted by two original Tim Hortons creations, the Apple Fritter and the Dutchie. They became the most popular donut choices in the 60's, and remain two of the most popular today. But as consumer tastes grew, so did the choices at Tim Hortons. The biggest change in the chain's product focus took place in 1976 with the introduction of the phenomenally successful Timbit (bite-sized donut hole), today available in over 35 different varieties. The chain's growth into the 1980's brought about a whole series of new product introductions: muffins (1981), cakes (1981), pies (1982), croissants (1983), cookies (1984), and soups & chili (1985). Sandwiches, which were originally introduced in 1993, were re-introduced as a new and improved line-up of 6 varieties, called "Tim's Own", in 1998. Also, in the 1990's, bagels (1996), flavored cappuccino (1997), Café Mocha (1999) and Iced Cappuccino (1999) were introduced. In 2003, the Turkey Bacon Club sandwich and Maple Pecan Danish were successful menu additions. In 2005 Tim Hortons introduced, Yogurt & Berries, Cinnamon Roll and Hot Smoothee to the menu. Many new great products were added to the menu in 2006 such as the Chicken Salad Wrap and the hot Breakfast Sandwich (eggs, sausage or bacon, processed cheese on a toasted homestyle biscuit). The chain's biggest drawing card remains its legendary Tim Hortons coffee. The special blend is also available in cans, as are Tim Hortons hot chocolate and English Toffee and French Vanilla cappuccinos, so guests can also enjoy these great tasting products at home. In addition to our regular stand alone restaurants, Tim Hortons locations can also be found in shopping malls, highway outlets, universities and hospitals, providing prominent visibility for the chain. Most standard Tim Hortons locations offer 24-hour drive-thru service, catering to consumers on the go. Combo unit locations, which house both a Tim Hortons and Wendy's, offer guests the convenience of both restaurants under one roof. In 1995, Tim Hortons merged with Wendy's International, Inc., giving new focus and impetus to the expansion of the Tim Hortons concept in the United States. The Canadian operation is primarily franchise owned and operated, and expansion plans call for the same key strategy to be implemented in the US and abroad. In March 2006, Tim Hortons completed an initial public offering of the company and was fully spun off as a separate company as of September 29, 2006. In December 2014, Tim Hortons became wholly owned by Restaurant Brands International, a public company whose common shares trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange and the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol QSR.
