Honoring those from the past and those stepping into the future

For the residents of Honeymoon Bay, Saturday, July 7, was a day of both remembering, and looking to the future.

For the residents of Honeymoon Bay, Saturday, July 7, was a day of both remembering, and looking to the future.

Starting at 1 p.m., the Memorial Doug Goddard Golf Tournament began out at March Meadows Golf Course in Honeymoon Bay.

Local firefighters, family, and friends took part in the tournament, taking advantage of the sunshine while remembering Honeymoon Bay firefighter and friend to many, Doug Goddard, who passed away in 2002.

Through the events, organizers raise funds for a $500 scholarship, which is given to a Honeymoon Bay resident who is planning to attend six months or more of post secondary education.

This year the scholarship went to Jordyn Wear.

Wear is in her second year at Vancouver Island University, and plans to use the funds to help pay for travel expenses and the purchasing of text books.

Right now she is looking to a career as an editor or an overseas English teacher, but says she is still keeping her options open.

Linzie Lauscher, wife of Goddard, says that post secondary education, especially in the trades, was important to Goddard. In the 1970s, Goddard was a hairdresser in Victoria.

“Doing the scholarship just seemed like a good fit,” she says. “And anything to bring up the awareness of the fire hall meant a lot to him.”

The tournament included a dinner which started at 6 p.m., at the Honeymoon Bay firehall.

This year’s KP (closest to the pin) for the men’s was Murray Nelson, and for the women’s KP went to Liz Cage. Winning golf group was Bernie Fall, Chris Fall, and Cage.
