WELCOME TO THE GHHC
(Georgetown Hockey Heritage Council)
The History of GEORGETOWN HOCKEY HERITAGE COUNCIL
The “ORIGINAL SIX (Joe Hall, Dave Kentner, Ted King, Garfield McGilvary, Ken McMillan, Roy Ward) gathered around a picnic table one warm summer day in 1977 to devise a method of recognizing the many individuals and groups who have contributed to Georgetown’s Hockey Heritage. From this meeting the Georgetown Hockey Heritage Council was formed and has flourished.
The Council has been very successful in the following:
Recognition: Since 1978 the Georgetown Hockey Heritage Award has honoured contributions to Georgetown’s Hockey Community. The Hockey Heritage Dinner has become the most significant hockey dinner in Georgetown. Recognition is also given through our Citation Awards, Ezeard Memorial Plaque, our Patron Awards and the naming of display cases, trophies and other hockey related items. The achievements of Georgetown’s Hockey Community are recorded and displayed at MOLDMASTER SPORTSPLEX and municipal entrance signs for today’s and future generations to be aware and take pride in.
Living Heritage: The Council fosters “Living Heritage” providing the opportunity for the stories of “past glory” to be retold. This is encouraged through a variety of programs such as sponsorship of local projects or persons that include, exhibition games (BEAUMONT CUP) and tournaments (our own Old Timers Tournament, O.P.J.H.L. All-Star games and the Dudley Hewitt Cup Central Canada Jr. A Hockey Championship April 2005) Sharing potential fund raising projects with the Georgetown Hockey Community.
Preservation and Education: The Council collects and displays Georgetown Hockey Memorabilia in both the Memorial Arena and the
Moldmasters SportsPlex. Georgetown is “The Home of The Little N.H.L.” and Georgetown Memorial Arena is the 2ND oldest continuously operating arena in Canada. These and other significant contributions to Canada’s Hockey Heritage are the basis of the hockey contributions to the Halton Hills Sport Museum and Resource Centre.
