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.
