KNIGHT OF CELEBRATION 2017 - CANADA 150 THEME
WHAT A SUCCESS !!!
Everything came together so well on the 26th and the weather finally cooperated with us. We fed around 200 people and there was easily another 100 people in attendance just to partake in all the activities.
From the looks on everyone's faces to the positive messages sent to our committee and volunteers, we are thankful! At NGCC our aim is to build up our community and last night we did.
Special thank you's go out to the planning committee - Ian, Donna T, Donna J, Patti, Sean and Geraldine. Also other Board members, especially Blair and Ryan as well as our staff and volunteers.
Pictures were taken by Cindy Phelan and they will be posted on our Facebook page soon, so watch for them!

Walter Jennings, one of the founding members of Glenlee CC passed away this week. He served on the Board of Directors for 45 years and was an integral part of the "Skate House" being built between the 2 rinks at the Glenlee site on Worthington Ave. Upon his retirement, that building was renamed the Walter Jennings Sports Facility and that made him very proud. Our community will miss you Walter!
Every year, our Volunteer coaches run into parents that are not satisfied with how their child is being coached. Here is a document that all parents (and coaches too) should read to remind themselves to keep things in perspective. Happy reading
A new article titled "Are Great Coaches Becoming an Endangered Species?" is also very good and worth a read...find it here.
And yet another good article titled "your kid and my kid are not making the pros".
