Last week, Burlington’s own Ron Foxcroft was in San Antonio, Texas to receive the Gold Whistle Award – one of sports highest honours for refereeing.
For those of you who don’t know, Ron is a former NCAA Referee, and is involved of the evaluation of NBA referees. He’s also a member of the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame.
Mayor Goldring and Colleen Mullholland were fortunate enough to be there to witness the award presentation – and I must say I’m sorry to have missed it!
So that’s why I wanted to take a moment last week to recognize this fantastic accomplishment, and also to thank Ron for his service to our community.
As you know, Ron led the charge on the fundraising side of the flood relief efforts – he really rallied our community together.
He has also been named Burlington Citizen of the Year, and is a recipient of the Queen’s Jubilee Medal.
So, in honour of Ron's most recent honour, I was thrilled to present him with two small tokens to convey both the congratulations and the thanks of Premier Kathleen Wynne, and of course, myself.
