Annual Golf Tournament and AGM, August 8th, 2018

On August 8th, 2018, ORVDA welcomed members, sponsors, industry peers and guests in the Village of Blue Mountain Collingwood at our 34th Annual General Meeting and Golf Tournament; the AGM and Golf Tournament are two of the most recognizable Association events ORVDA is privileged to host for our members.Despite rainy morning weather conditions, golfers enjoyed seasonably warm temperatures just in time for tee off; while a small intimate group enjoyed a guided paddling excursion down the Beaver River followed by wine tasting at Georgian Hills Winery!


Honouring Pierre Belanger

Bruno Tombari, President of ORVDA, closed the AGM with a very special presentation to Pierre Belanger, of Earlton RV, Earlton, Ontario, commemorating Pierre’s many years of distinguished service to the Ontario Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association.

Pierre Belanger, who recently retired from his role at Earlton RV to pursue his second career as a buffalo rancher, has received many accolades from the industry, the community, and the nation, as a tireless spokesman for a wide range of noteworthy causes.

Pierre has been active as an advisor to the indigenous First Nations community in Northern Ontario. One of his proudest accomplishments was being adopted into the tribe with a special name – “the mouth that walks” – a very special gesture of appreciation for his many years of work on behalf of First Nations organizations.


SILENT AUCTION – The Sunshine Foundation of Canada

Each year, the AGM & Golf committee selects a well deserving charitable organization as recipients of proceeds raised through our annual silent auction and funding donations from benefactors.  The ORVDA is pleased to announce that with the support from our partners, members and sponsors, ORVDA met its fundraising goals and presented a $5000 donation to The Sunshine Foundation of Canada (; making dreams come true for children with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses.

Charities such as these rely on the support from important fundraising initiatives; we thank everyone for their contributions and participation!
