Snowball is an award winning celebration!

On March 29, 2008 at the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce gala, Haliburton County Warden Eleanor Harrison presented Jim Jones, chair of the Dorset Snowball Committee with her Warden's choice "Award of the Year for 2007". "The entire village of Dorset deserves the accolades" she said. Everyone in Dorset rallies behind the event which has something to offer for people of all ages, indoors and out.
