The Cornwall Club has so many stellar volunteers that we could acknowledge for National Volunteer Week… and our gratitude runs so deep for all of these helping hands!! One of those wonderful volunteers is our very own webmaster, ’reporter’, and social media superstar, Derek MacEwen!
Derek covers all the club news from weather closures and league draws, to sharing wonderful stories about members (both past and present). He highlights our advertisers and shares all the current news on provincial and national curling events.
We are able to reach out to our membership regularly and stay in touch by way of Derek’s talented writing. To say that our members appreciate Derek’s time and commitment, would be an enormous understatement!
We know, without a doubt, we have a fully comprehensive webpage and that all of our important members‘ communication is due to his heartfelt dedication.
As if being our media guru not enough, Derek is also the Draw Master for our very successful Wednesday Evening Ladder League! He was also a member of our Board of Directors and served as President, at which time there were some wonderful club initiatives.
Derek is also often available to help in many other ways~ he has been a BBQ chef, lead tournament scoring, and many other offers of help. Recently Derek took on a project (presented by our Club President, Bryan Sutherland) relating to thousands of treasured club photographs from over the years. Derek volunteered to preserve our club photo history by hand scanning thousands of photos, and then uploading them our webpage for all to see!!
This was no small feat and so appreciated!
Thank you, Derek…. for your time and talent! You are a wonderful person and all of your roles at the Cornwall Curling Club have contributed to our thriving and special club!
