Remembering Sheldon Galbraith

We were saddened to hear of the passing of Sheldon Galbraith last week.  Mr. Galbraith was a valued and well-respected member of Minto’s coaching staff in the 1940s. He is especially remembered as Barbara Ann Scott’s coach during those years. We send our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.

Happy 75th Birthday to Donald Jackson!

Don celebrated his 75th birthday this April and we would like to send best wishes from his Minto Skating Club Family!

In memory of John Aylen

Many at the club were saddened to hear that John Aylen passed away on Christmas day at the age of 91. John and his late wife Andrée were life-time members of the Minto Skating Club. John continued to be an active member of the club community after the passing of Andrée and he was always a good friend to the club. His wisdom and legal advice were invaluable over the years and he and Andrée were proud sponsors of Minto Summer Skate for many years including this past summer's competition.

We extend our deepest sympathies to John's family and friends at this time. John will be greatly missed by many in the Minto Skating Club community.

More details about John can be found here. Details of the visitation and service can be found here.
