The full interview with bonus material:
Any day somewhere in Northumberland, people are gathering to play sports. It could be at a local school gym or an arena, or a field. It could be a group of young kids just learning to play soccer or a rep team practicing for a hockey tournament. Then, there are the lawn bowlers in Victoria Park or the babies and moms at the YMCA. Whether it is swimming laps or running laps, sports is huge in Northumberland.
The Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame inducted its latest slate of outstanding athletes and volunteers recently, plus it announced a new youth recognition award. It was named after the founder of the Sports Hall of Fame, Ross Quigley. He recently passed away. It was a very emotional ceremony this year, one filled with sadness related to Ross, but also great joy in honouring the new inductees. This is Don Conway, the secretary for the Cobourg and District Sports Hall of Fame, telling these fantastic stories.
