  • Dave Gower Memorial Golf Day


The Ontario Parks Association Foundation (OPAF) is a registered charitable organization that provides financial support to future parks professionals through bursaries and scholarships awarded for educational purposes. The Dave Gower Memorial Golf Day is the annual fundraiser that funds this program, enabling the OPAF to continue providing these scholarship and bursary awards to deserving post-secondary students year after year.

Dave Gower served his community as a municipally elected official in Huron County and was a founding member of the OPA Foundation in 1990. It is because of Dave’s foresight and dedication to the cause of educating students in parks related areas that we have honoured his memory by naming this fundraiser the Dave Gower Memorial Golf Day.
