The old boy club of Georgetown

Mr Elliot: Roy Ward of Georgetown is sitting in the members’ gallery. On 12 March 1990, Roy was honoured by his town for seven decades of involvement in minor hockey. At the dinner held in his honour, Ron McLean and Brian McFarlane, of TV renown, Brian Lewis, the vice-president of the National Hockey League in charge of refereeing and a Georgetown native, the mayor of Halton Hills, Russ Miller, and the regional chairman of Halton region, Peter Pomeroy, all spoke in glowing terms of Roy’s dedication to hockey and, more important, to the participating young people of the community.
Roy participated as a player for more than 30 years and then became a number one volunteer as a coach, organizer and fund-raiser for about 40 years. In small-town Ontario, the backbone of our communities are persons like Roy, who, for no personal gain, give of themselves decade after decade for the benefit of our youth. This fine tradition is being carried on by his sons and their children, one of whom scored five goals and five assists in one game in this year’s hockey tournament, held the week of the midwinter break in Georgetown.
I am really pleased to recognize publicly Roy Ward of Georgetown, the 1990 recipient of the Hockey Heritage Award, and to thank him for his many years of dedicated service to the youth of Georgetown
