It’s been a year already!


On Thursday, September 15th the staff at Esso and Tim Hortons located at 498 Causley Street will be hosting an official customer appreciation event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  New and existing customers are invited to the site for a FREE Barbecue, prize draws, giveaways and special deals.

“I can’t believe it has been a year already since we opened,” said Site Manager Lyne Briand. The community of Blind River has come to embrace this full service station, and I believe that our staff offers a unique small-town feel that people really appreciate. We have come so far to date, and we sincerely want to thank all our loyal customers who continue to be a friendly face and make our site a part of their daily routine. It is our hope that through this event we can also bring surrounding communities together with a FREE Barbecue while raising funds for the Rotary Club of Blind River. I hope to see you there!”

The customer traffic has been steadily increasing to date, and with the Tim Hortons on site it only adds value to a store that promises to bring convenience and customer service to the next level. This FREE Barbecue is a great opportunity not only to celebrate but to raise awareness as well as funds for the Rotary Club of Blind River. This organization is important in the community as it focuses on youth education and development through participation in various local initiatives.

“The Rotary Club of Blind River is honored to be invited to receive the benefits of this BBQ, said Bea Jensen Rotary Club President. This donation will help us support our community and area.  Drop by, eat a burger or hotdog, have something to drink…hear what Rotary has been doing and how your support can help Rotary with local projects.  Thank you for your past and continued support!”

Volunteers of the Rotary Club of Blind River will be on site to receive proceeds from a unique fundraising fuel event.
