On Thursday, Aug. 17 Sunrise Credit Union and Valleyview Consumers Co-op presented a cheque to the Virden Spray Park Committee for $7,000 at the Sunrise Credit Union in Virden.

The Wil Weir tournament was established six years ago in memory of Wil Weir who was an employee of Sunrise Credit Union, and an avid volunteer in the community. The memorial tournament has raised $57,660 to date. The funds have been donated to local organizations including Funshine Day Care, Virden Day Care, Virden Wellview Golf Course, Virden Minor Ball, Virden Curling Club, Virden Swimming Pool, Virden Area Food Cupboard, and the Virden Spray Park.

In 2017, Sunrise Credit Union and Valleyview Consumers Co-op Ltd. have joined together to host this tournament together going forward; with a goal to continue to support charitable organizations and community projects for the betterment of the community. The success of the tournament can be attributed to the financial support received from the businesses and individuals who continue to support the tournament each year.
