Cornwall hockey coach could be top Hockey Volunteer in Canada
A local volunteer and former Cornwall Citizen of the Year is in the running for top hockey volunteer in the country. Rod McLeod, President of the Cornwall Girls Hockey Association and volunteer coach of the Cornwall Fastbreakers, has made it into the final 100 Hockey Volunteers in Canada. The nomination is within the Kraft Hockey Goes On program: a new contest that celebrates and recognizes local hockey supporters. Dominique Larocque was one of the many people involved in nominating McLeod and says that he's a very worthy candidate for our region. (Play Audio 1). The top 25 nominees who receive the most votes will be rewarded a bursary for their selected minor hockey association. In total there will be five winners of $100,000 and 20 winners of $20,000. Larocque adds that the money would benefit the Cornwall Girls Hockey Association greatly but also the City of Cornwall. (Play Audio 2).
Larocque is encouraging everyone within Cornwall and SD&G to vote as many times as possible. (Play Audio 3). Voting for the top spot starts Saturday March 23rd and ends Sunday March 24th. During this time people will be able to vote multiple times at www.krafthockeygoeson.ca.
