16th Annual Industry Memorial Golf Classic

 
  
 
 
 

The 16th Annual Industry Memorial Golf Classic took place on Wednesday, October 4, 2017,  at the Blue Springs Golf Club in Acton, Ontario.

A bit of early rain gave way to an enjoyable fall day on this scenic golf layout as CHHMA members, non-members, customers, friends and family came out to remember current and past honourees.

Once again, we had great support from the management team and buyers of Home Hardware - many of who were in attendance.

This event honours stalwarts from the hardware & housewares industry who have recently passed away.

Dinner & Silent Auction

After some fun time on the golf course, an afternoon dinner and silent auction was held to raise money for the CHHMA Scholarship Program and we would like to thank all the companies who provided items for the auction and individuals who bid on them. In addition, money was raised from hole sponsorship (thank you sponsors!) and the purchase of event passports that allowed participants to enter the hole competitions and draws. As a result, a number of skilled and/or lucky attendees walked away with some great prizes.

After dinner, we had some people come up to say a few words about each of this year’s honourees.  Michael Caplan’s son Craig (Task Tool’s CEO) talked about his father’s founding of Task Tool and his lengthy career in the industry as well as some of his passions outside of work. Paul Straus (President of Home Hardware) spoke about his many years working with Walter Hachborn and some of Walter’s accomplishments within the industry as well as his philanthropy work.  Long-time industry veteran Ernie McCay was on hand to discuss his friend Jack King’s time in the industry and his passion for selling and finding new product opportunities.  Finally, Bill Wilson recalled his time working with his friend and colleague Peter Lynch who spent his entre working career of 42 years at D.H. Howden where he made many friends and was well respected by all in the industry.  Peter also volunteered a lot of his time at St. Peters Cathedral, St. Joseph’s hospital and the Grand Theatre in London, Ontario.
