Just another thank you to Ron Pegg and his book, as Ron has graciously donated his earnings from this book to the Beeton Athletic Association.
A very special thank you goes to Jim Rutherford and his family for sharing this special event with the people of Beeton. I had the opportunity to hear the speeches and I very impressed with all the speeches but the one I will remember the best is Jim Rutherford. He probably spoke for about 45 minutes but it seemed like 5 minutes because he told stories that most of us can relate to especially when it deals with parents, siblings, friends, coaches, playing different sports and the best thing was that it was personal. He shared moments with us that I know I will never forget.
Any others- in the event that we missed thanking certain people or groups, we apologize.
It is truly amazing that a small group of people could make this event happen in a short time frame and happen it did.
