Thanking Wayne Mears
Last night marked the end of an era. We thanked Wayne Mears for his 37 years of service as he retires his volunteer position of association treasurer. 

Wayne is our longest serving volunteer who has decided to retire after 37 years with CMHA. 

He came to Cambridge in 1984 after coaching and officiating in Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg. He started his volunteer career here as a coach at the major peewee AA level and won 4 tournaments, the Alliance Championships, and provincial championships that season. It was a great beginning and he went on to coach for many years after that. 

In 1985 Wayne was elected to the board and became our treasurer in 1986 when there was an opening. 

Then, after a brief break for 2 years, Wayne returned in 1989 to take on the role of Supervisor of Coaches, travel and then VP of travel for a further 15 years. In 2004, the association was in need of a treasurer and Wayne took this on, doing the job admirably for a further 20 years. 

All of us at CMHA are thankful to have had you. You have not just been a treasurer for these past years but also a wealth of knowledge for minor hockey. It has been a comfort knowing that we were being looked after financially. 

Again, we thank you Wayne, for your 37 years of outstanding volunteerism in support of Cambridge Minor Hockey. You have touched countless lives through your time here and your unwavering support and guidance has significant contributed to our success.
