We have recently lost a long time friend and member of the league. Ed Hollett was involved with the Provincials as manager in the late 1960s. The Provincials was the govt team in the Civil Service League. When the NAPE league started in 1971, Ed was a coach. He was not a big man and I never seen him play hockey. I don’t know if he could even skate. However he had the interest in the league. I don’t recall him missing many, if any, games until he got sick a few years ago. He was very dependable to show up for games and always had a bit of advice or encouragement to help us along. Beside coach, he would attend AGMs and drafts regularly. He was a true volunteer. He did it for the love of the game.
