Save the Date!! The 2017 Dave Gower Memorial Event will be held on Friday, June 2nd at the Legends on the Niagara. The profit from this event goes to support the OPA Foundation's Scholarship & Bursary Award Program. You spend the day on a beautiful golf course and a future parks professional will reap the benefits!!
