Outstanding Volunteers!
Submitted By Tina Dawson on Friday, July 2, 2021
North Durham Minor Hockey Association wishes to announce the commencement of a program to recognize and honor the Volunteers that make the provision of hockey programming possible in our community. During the Annual General Meeting, hosted on June 16, 2021, we were pleased to announce the inaugural honorees.

Beth Stewart:

Beth volunteered in several capacities for many years.  She started her Volunteer work with Port Perry Minor Hockey Association and continued through the amalgamation to North Durham Minor Hockey Association.  Her mark was left within our Recreational Hockey Program.  Beth oversaw the programming, recruiting of volunteers, Christmas tournament and other initiatives such as our involvement in The First Shift program.

As is the position of the volunteer, Beth would offer her time and assistance to all programming requirements, Recreational, Representative or Operational.

We thank you for all your contributions to North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

Alene Swan:

Alene volunteered at all levels for our association, from Team Manager to Executive Member.  Alene’s experience included time with Uxbridge Youth Hockey, Uxbridge Minor Hockey and now North Durham Minor Hockey.  Alene was a major influence in the amalgamation with Port Perry Minor Hockey and became the First President of North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

As with any volunteer organization, in our case a new Association, Alene took the time and showed the leadership to assume roles and responsibilities during periods of change within our Association.  We have learned the meaning of “Leadership through Action” by having had the opportunity to work with Alene during the infancy of North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

We thank you for all your contributions to North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

Ray Paton:

Ray also volunteered at all levels for our association, from Coaching, to Director, to Executive Member.  Ray’s experience included time with Port Perry Minor Hockey and North Durham Minor Hockey.  Ray was a major contributor in the amalgamation with Uxbridge Minor Hockey. Ray worked extensively to ensure our Representative programming was supported, directed and fair to the members of North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

Ray took on many of the challenges we encountered during the initial years of our programming as a Director of Representative Programming and Vice-President.  Ray led North Durham Minor Hockey Association in areas of Coach Selection, Representative Programming and Team Development.  Ray was also available at all times to work within any areas that we needed volunteers to contribute.

We thank you for all your contributions to North Durham Minor Hockey Association.

 

Finally, we wish to thank the families of Beth, Alene and Ray.  North Durham Minor Hockey Association consumed many hours of their time and the families were their support mechanism.  Volunteering, like Hockey, is truly a family affair.
