Dumfries Mutual Donates $45,000 to the Twin Pad Capital Campaign

(Paris, ON) On behalf of Dumfries Mutual Insurance Company, John Innes, director, and manager Shelley Sutton presented a cheque in the amount of $45,000 to the Twin Pad capital campaign.

“It is very important for all of us to support the youth of today,” says Shelley Sutton. “The Twin Pad Complex addresses both urban and rural needs and we are glad to be involved.”

On accepting the donation, Councillor Brian Coleman said, “On behalf of Council I want to thank the insurance companies for stepping up to support the campaign.”

Dumfries Mutual Insurance, founded in May 1856 in the Village of Roseville, is the oldest Ontario farm mutual insurance company and has grown from a company that was strictly an insurer against fire perils to one that now offers residential, agricultural automobile and commercial coverage. Today the company is based in Cambridge, with customers throughout Brant and the County of Brant.

A long time supporter of the 4H movement in Ontario, Dumfries Mutual sees the creation of the Twin Pad Complex in the same light. “It’s for the kids,”adds Sutton. “We are a strong supporter of 4H and this recreational complex falls into the same category… helping youth.”
