The Wellington DUKES have always been involved in their community!.Community Involvement opportunities are coordinated by contacting the team, who will volunteer with community organizations, schools and service clubs to create successful community events .
Participating in a variety of events, the DUKES are visible and involved in their community, raisingthe profile of the team. The 35 Community Involvement events coordinated last season reached thousands of people in our community, generated excellent media coverage, and made the DUKES ‘heroes’ to hundreds of kids.
School based events were held at CML Snider School in Wellington, Queen Elizabeth School in Picton, and St. Gregory’s Catholic School in Picton.
In addition to schools, a number of events were in support of community based organizations and service clubs.
The Wellington Dukes are pleased to partner with the Wellington Legion in various events throughout the year, including participating in the Rememberance Day service.
Looking ahead to the season, the Dukes want to build upon the success and continue with elementary school events, and add more ‘community service’ to the mix.
