Bob Maughan Award
Submitted By Darryl Terpstra on Monday, October 26, 2020
The Bob Maughan is our most coveted award, usually presented at our Year End Hockey Banquet.  Bob Maughan was a much-loved pillar in our community, the Village of Point Edward.  For decades, he owned and operated “Bob’s Variety” which is now known as Point Variety. 

He was the most generous, kind, big hearted man….it has been said Bob never turned anyone away if they needed something and could not afford to buy it at his store.   He hired Point kids and treated them so well, they never wanted to work anywhere else.  They considered him family.  When Bob passed away…he left a lasting legacy in the Point.  He set up a modest scholarship fund that we award each year to a student from our community pursuing post-secondary education.  Bob believed in helping others, giving people the benefit of the doubt, treating others with kindness and respect.  He treated kids buying penny candy with the same respect as adults.  He always had a big smile and friendly greeting for each and every person he met. 

 

The Bob Maughan award is for the “person or organization assisting Youth Development”.  In previous years, this award has been won by the Point Edward Optimist Club, the Village of Point Edward, the Early Years Centre, Noelle’s Gift, Special Olympics and many other fine organizations.  We had several worthy nominees this year….and the organization receiving this award could not be more deserving.

 

Pathways Health Centre for Children is a family-centered community agency that serves Lambton County children and youth with physical, developmental and communication needs and their families, as well as adults for some specialized services. As one of a large group of Children’s Treatment Centres in the province of Ontario, the Centre provides a continuum of rehabilitation and support services in the community as well as an on-site integrated child-care service.  Our experience with Pathyways while we partnered with them to provide a grass-roots, inclusive soccer program featuring an opportunity for fun and accessible access to recreation, fresh air and exercise was nothing short of incredible. 

 

For many years, Amy Spadafora collaborated with us and supported Pathways Clients participation in our programming. Her enthusiasm was contagious and we thoroughly enjoyed having Amy support our programming as well.  We continue to have youth participating in our Hockey program who are supported by Pathways and we wish to acknowledge the hard work and excellence by Pathways staff and Management. 

Congratulations to our Bob Maughan – Community Involvement Award Recipient – Pathways Centre for Children and Youth.
