YMCA of Eastern Ontario

Building healthy communities

George E. Smith Memorial Fire Truck Pull

The YMCA of Eastern Ontario’s annual fire truck pull as become a community favourite with teams raising money for the Y and competing for bragging rights, year-after-year.

This year, the Y is honoured to present the George E. Smith Memorial Fire Truck Pull in recognition of George Smith’s many contributions to Brockville and surrounding area. His support of the YMCA has touched us all as a long-time volunteer, as a chair and president of the Brockville and Area YMCA Board of Directors, as a committee member helping to raise funds for a new Y building, and as a member and chair of many annual giving campaigns. He was named the YMCA Volunteer of the Year in 2008, receiving the Dr. Stanley “Y” Values Award.

The YMCA is pleased to recognize Mr. Smith’s lifelong contribution to the health and wellness of the Brockville and area community with the naming of this year’s special event.
