The exploits Of Harvey Eugene (Lefty) McDonald at the Royal Kingston Curling Club will never be forgotten.

From provincial championships, club championships, bonspiel championships, and chairman of probably every bonspiel in the storied history of Canada's second oldest curling club, his efforts are forever etched in granite history.

However, what I want to convey to our members today about the man who lost a long, long battle with cancer (and never once complained) on December 23rd, 2015, is what he did behind the scenes at RKCC.

For starters, when he received his life membership in 1990, which is granted after 30 consecutive years of participation, it meant a free ride for the left-hander for as long as he wanted to curl or take part in any activities at the club. So what did Lefty do? He continued to pay his yearly membership dues with directions that they were to go directly to the club's junior curling program to foster the growth of the roaring game among the younger


For those wondering about curling tonight, Wednesday, February 24th, the club remains open for scheduled, Evening Ladies Club games.
