Being the president of the Chedabucto Curling Club and interacting with its members and other curlers — both younger and older — has been both a privilege and an honour. With encouragement, assistance and guidance from a large group of individuals as well as financial support from the MODG, the NS Government and generous individuals, we have accomplished a great deal over my nine years as the Club’s president. The executive members with whom I have worked over those memorable years have been THE BEST with their support, advice, and tireless energies resulting in the Chedabucto Curling Club being the marvelous facility and organization that we are very fortunate to have within our community.
My best wishes and sincere gratitude to all.
Stay well — good curling.
The following was sent to the newspapers for their consideration to publish:
At the September 25th Chedabucto Curling Club Community Activity Society (CAS) Executive meeting there was a peaceful transfer of the presidency. In October 2019, Ray Bates, President, (right) submitted his resignation from the executive to become effective at the club’s AGM in May 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the early closure of the curling club causing no AGM, Ray agreed to remain as its president until autumn. As per CAS by-laws, Vice President Maurice Landry (left) was installed by the CAS executive as the club’s president until duly elected by the CAS membership at the next AGM. President Landry is the 31th person to serve as the curling club’s president since the organization was formed in 1963.
