Five to be inducted into Hall of Fame
As is tradition, The Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame will be welcoming five new inductees at its 41st Annual Induction dinner to be held at the Char Lan Recreation Centre in Williamstown Wednesday, August 21.
Included in this year’s distinguished group are retired educator and community activist Tina Cairncross of Glen Roy, Alexandria’s road racer and marathoner Cathy MacLean, and professional hockey player Kent McDonell, originally from Williamstown.

The directors of the Hall of Fame welcome Glengarry’s Glenn McDonell as the evening’s guest speaker. Glenn MacDonell is currently President and Chief Executive Officer for Special Olympics Ontario.
