YMCA of Eastern Ontario

Building healthy communities

Results are in!

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.

For the second year, YMCA is pleased to recognize George E. Smith’s lifelong contribution to the health and wellness of the Brockville and area community by naming the event the George E. Smith Memorial Fire Truck Pull.

George was a long-time volunteer at the Y, 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.
