Club founder Gordie Hermann recovering from heart surgery

Gordie Hermann, one of the founding members of our Club, is recovering in Halifax after major heart surgery today, to repair five blockages. He was in surgery from 9:15 this morning until 3:30 this afternoon, and is reported to be doing well. We wish him a speedy recovery!

Way back in 1979,  Gordie  was the Cornwall Village councillor in charge of special community projects, and helped bring forward the decision to build a curling rink. In the spring of 1980 the residents of the village of Cornwall gave their support for participation in the program. A committee and then a charter Board of Directors were subsequently formed, with Gordie, and others, including Rupert Sweetapple, Ernie Stavert, Roy Coffin, and Al MacCormac who are still active at the Club, along with a number of others, who have either passed on or are no longer involved.

  1. When I moved to PEI Gordie helped me a lot trying to make me understand the game. I would like you to let him know that he will need to recover fast because we still need his presence and his support. Good luck Gordie!
