Brian McFarlane will be guest speaker

Former Hockey Night in Canada host and Peter Puck creator Brian McFarlane will be the guest speaker at the third annual Leaside Sports Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Leaside Arena Friday, Nov. 20.

“I commend you for honouring people in your community who have contributed so much and have earned the recognition you now provide,” said

McFarlane of the upcoming event. “And I’m a huge fan of George Armstrong.”

Armstrong is one of five who will be inducted into the hall that night (profiles were published in last month’s edition of Leaside Life). The evening will also include recognition of Leaside’s Athlete of the Year Reid Humphrey and a tribute to founding Sports Hall of Fame committee member David Stickney who died earlier this year.

Tickets to the event may be purchased from any of Leaside’s sports organisations, or at the arena office or pro shop, or online at
