Though long retired from RRC, no moss grows under Kent Morgan‘s feet. Still writing a bi-weekly sports column for five Winnipeg community newspapers, his December 3rd installment (posted online in the Canstar Community News at goo.gl/hkVWaE) is sure to interest many HG members. Continue reading

As mentioned in the minutes, Rose Marie Hess read this piece at the October HG meeting. It was suggested that we could sponsor or get the ball rolling for an event such as this for students in the college who are on a very limited budget.
