Sports personalities have chance to be in book

Wetaskiwin & County Sports Hall of Fame looking for people, teams for book

Dear editor,

I am currently researching “Who’s Who in Sports” in the City and County of Wetaskiwin on behalf of the Wetaskiwin & County Sports Hall of Fame. We would like to create a book of these dedicated people.

We are looking for anyone that has been involved in sports as a volunteer, coach, player, umpire, referee or any unsung hero behind the scenes, past and present in your organization. We feel that these incredible should be recognized and a record of their accomplishments and dedication must be recorded. We’re celebrating over 100 years in sports in Wetaskiwin and the county.

Information we need includes person or team name (with contact name), address, town/city, postal code, phone #, email, sport, number of years involved, photo if possible, awards/recognitions and any other information that is available, including whether the person is deceased. We would like to have the information by Dec. 30, 2018.

Please submit as many names as possible. We already have all of the names of those inducted into the Wetaskiwin & County Sports Hall of Fame.

If you can help with our request, please email or mail me the information at these addresses: Wetaskiwin & County Sports Hall of Fame, 4315-52 Street, Leduc AB T9E 5B6 or marilynsned@yahoo.ca.
