Community Organizations

Steckley Gooderham Funeral Homes are happy to support local Community Organizations by offering use of our well equipped boardrooms for meetings and events.  Here are just some of the organisations that we support:

Huronia Rose Society  - From their website:

The Huronia Rose Society's website was made possible by a bequest from the estate of Elizabeth (Betty) Nielsen. Betty was a member of the Canadian Rose Society in Toronto and she was the editor of the Canadian Rose Annual when they lived in Toronto. They moved to Waubashene and she became a charter member of the Huronia Rose Society. She donated a trophy for the Best Design which is still being vied for at our annual show. We appreciate her lifelong dedication to the promotion of rose culture and will continue her work with the information on this website.

Early in 1980, a public meeting was organized in Barrie to see if there was enough interest to start a Rose Society. A good attendance indicated it could be a viable organization and so the Huronia Rose Society was born.

This is still the ONLY Rose Society north of Toronto, being in the Georgian Bay area of the Great Lakes. Huronia, a tourist destination, had already been home to the Huron First Nations when the first Euoropeans arrived in the late 1600's.
