Past Presidents Plaque for Chedabucto Curling Club and its purchase options….

Greetings,

The Chedabucto CC Executive has approved the purchase of a Past Presidents plaque to acknowledge and to honour our rink’s 26 past presidents.  It was felt that after the rink’s 51 year history such a recognition was long overdo. Our intent is to present this recognition to as many Chedabucto CC past presidents as possible who are able to attend the rink’s season-closing dinner on April 18 and then for it to be proudly hung within the rink. Being a group that is continuously aware of costs, the Executive, after much discussion, communications and research, approved the purchase of the 36-plates plaque from Summer Street Enterprises, New Glasgow, for slightly more that $300.00, which includes all present engraving.  The approximate cost exists due to the possibility we might be eligible for a rebate with items over $250.00. Some thoughts regarding the plaque’s purchase: The plaque has 36 plates with only 26 needed at this time thereby leaving a balance of 10 of our future past presidents.  The idea being contemplated is for the 36th plate to be used to acknowledge whomever would like to purchase the plaque as a donation to the rink. If a business or a past president or his/her relative(s) would like to contact me to offer to purchase that would be great.  If someone would like to buy it in memory of a former Chedabucto CC member, such a memorial act will also be welcomed. If past presidents — or rink members (past of present) —  wish to contribute donations to the plaque’s cost that too would be tremendously appreciated. The rink, if necessary, would then pay the difference between donations received and the plaque’s purchase cost. If you are able to assist this purchase, please do.  Should you know of another or of a business that might consider such a donation, please forward this email or make your personal contact. Have the donor(s) contact me so a tally of moneys raised can be coordinated until we reach the plaque’s purchase cost. In closing, my thanks to Kay Chisholm, Secretary, for doing the research to compose the Chedabucto Curling Club Past Presidents’ list as is attached.  I also thank Jim Muise for his time and energy to obtain quotes and to oversee the acquisition of this plaque to honour these 26 curlers who contributed to enable  the Chedabucto  CC to achieve its 51-year history.

Best regards,

Ray
