||The Baysville Curling Club, all the residents of Baysville, the Lake of Bays and Muskoka who knew Marie VanClieaf are saddened by her passing.
Marie passed away recently at Rogers Cove, Huntsville. She passed peacefully in her easy chair at 94 years of age. Marie was President of the Curling Club from 1984 - 1986, a devoted treasurer of the horticultural group for over 20 years. She was also known as the Baysville historian. She had an amazing memory and often reminisced about early days or names of local families and was a treasurer of local knowledge.
Marie served as Councilor and Harvey, her late husband had served as Mayor.
Marie meant a lot to the village of Baysville.
She will be greatly missed by family and friends.
There will be a celebration of life for Marie in the Spring

Special note to all Members and Visitors
We are asking for your consideration with regards to the use of scents, colognes and perfumes while
in our club.
Several of our curlers suffer from asthma and recently one individual was forced to leave the club
due to a scent that someone was wearing while curling.
Some of us may be not be aware that certain chemicals used in perfumes and colognes will cause reactions in some of our
curlers and guests.
Asthma can be very frightening to the sufferer and those who witness an attack.
Please do your part by refraining wearing any scented products while in the club.
To make our curling facility healthy and safe, we need everyone's support to make our club a scent free environment.
We very much appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
It is the mission of the Baysville Curling Club to provide a safe, clean and friendly environment which offers the
opportunity to enjoy fellowship and sport.
We are dedicated to the promotion of curling by providing an affordable, enjoyable, and social activity for people of all skill
from beginner to experienced.
