It’s an honour that recognizes the contributions of members who helped make the Berwick Curling Club what it is today.
The club held its sixth annual Wall of Fame induction ceremony, the first at its new facility at the Kings Mutual Century Centre, on Jan. 26. Inductees included Donnie Smith, Mike and Michelle Larsen and Curt Palmer. Smith wasn’t on hand for the ceremony because of a curling commitment at the Ship Hector Bonspiel.
Wall of Fame committee chairman and induction ceremony emcee Greg Hubbert said the induction ceremony is a way to look back as well as forward.
“We’re honouring people for their incredible contributions to make this club what it is,” Hubbert said. “Most of our inductees didn’t just excel on the ice, some of them in fact never stepped on the ice.”
He said many made contributions as club presidents, board members, ice makers, through raising money and other volunteer efforts.
