The Royal Kingston Curling Club recognized more than a dozen outstanding volunteers on Championship Night. The 14 inductees to the Wall of Recognition helped in particular in the process of building our new club on Days Road, establishing a strategic plan to guide the club forward, preparing and submitting grant applications, carpentry work, helping in the kitchen, coaching, convening bonspiels and serving on committees. From left are: Reg Gore, Wayne Smith, Judy Russell, Gene Miller (accepting the Emeritus Employee award for the late Rod Leeder), Jim Lesley, Steve Quinn, Jan Ray, Jamie Duffe, accepting on behalf of his father, the late Bill Duffe, Jim Barton, Emil Lindt, Diane Labrie, Joanne Miller, Member at Large and chair of the nominations committee, accepting on behalf of Denis Faubert and Vic Matthews, and April Welsh, who was herself inducted to the Wall of Recognition and who also accepted on behalf of her late husband, Brian Collingwood.
“RKCC is blessed to have outstanding volunteers, essential to the running of our club,” said Joanne. “These are just some of the ways our members give generously of their time and energy.”
