January 7, 2014  By Administrator

Jan. 7, 2014, Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – The Ontario Ground Water Association (OGWA) is gearing up for its 62nd convention, which runs from Apr. 3-5 at the White Oaks Resort and Spa in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

The trade show will kick off with live music, wine, beer and hors d’oeuvres. Afterwards, attendees will have the option to meet in the 1,200 sq. ft. hospitality suite with an outside patio and fire pit. This area will be available all three evenings.


On Apr. 4, members will be able to attend the trade show and take part in the annual general meetings. Family members will have full use of the White Oaks’ facility, which includes the tennis court, spa, weight room and pool. A free shuttle will be available if one chooses to visit the town of Niagara-on-the-Lake to stroll along its quaint shopping district. The city of Niagara Falls is a short drive away. The evening will wrap up with the president’s dinner, and live and silent auctions.

On the final day, delegates will be able to receive technical training, which includes a guided walking tour of the Niagara gorge by Terry Carter, the chief geologist at the Ministry of Natural Resources. For those not requiring training hours, there will be an alternative option to take a walking tour of the gorge or an all-day trip to a winery (includes lunch) at the Inn on the Twenty. The evening will consist of dinner featuring the live entertainment of duelling pianists in the White Oaks ballroom.

The White Oaks Resort and Spa has set aside a number of rooms for guests of the convention from $147 per night. The early bird deadline is Mar. 1.
