Are you starting to think about those beautiful summer days in Dunnottar?!  Your Dunnottar Community Club (“DCC”) team is counting down the days and we have already started our planning for another great season.  Over the past few years, the DCC has benefited greatly from our major renovation projects such as our new kitchen, washrooms and exterior foundation.  Now that these projects have been completed, we will continue to focus on various smaller projects inside and outside of the DCC including the upkeep of the Club grounds.  We also plan to invest in new sports equipment in order to offer new games and group sports activities for our program.  We are very appreciative of the continued efforts and support of the Village, which has enabled all of the major investments and work at the DCC.

The DCC is pleased to provide a one of a kind summer program that brings our children and community members together within a wonderful community setting.  Over the years, this program has only been possible with the active support of our community members, including those volunteers that have offered to instruct special events such as our popular Tye Dye, jewelry making, scrapbooking, papermaking, juggling, dance and yoga events.  We encourage community members with a special talent or hobby to consider sharing their passion by leading one of our craft or sporting events.  The community’s ongoing feedback on our program has enabled us to offer those recreational activities that our families and members have grown to love – so we greatly encourage your feedback and / or suggestions for the upcoming year to help us once again offer and deliver a great program.  You can also follow us on Facebook at

Tie Dye Day in Dunnottar

Thanks to the hard working volunteers for making this morning a huge success.

Around 150 t-shirts decorated here today!

The t-shirts are soaked in special solution, then twisted and tied with elastic bands.
My t-shirt!  After they have been dyed, they go into a sealed plastic bag for 24 hours.  Then rinsed with flowing water, and washed in a machine.  Ready to wear in 2 days.
The twist!

Thanks to Eva for designing my t-shirt!
