In a pre-game ceremony last Thursday, Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey honoured on of their longest-serving volunteers in Jim Lindsay, and announced a new foundation.
The Jim Lindsay Foundation will support families that need financial aid for hockey.
Lindsay had two sons, Geoff and Greg, registered with RMMHA in 1989 when he got involved in the association. Over 27 years he coached at nearly every level, and served on the executive.
In 1994 RMMHA crafted a new volunteer position called the rep coordinator, and he took the job. He also served on committee tasked with branding the rep program which selected the Rustlers name.
He has long been affiliated with the Midget A1 team, coaching alongside Spence Levan, and was instrumental in starting the red sleeves jacket tradition.
