Woytowich recognized for his contributions to curling in B.C.

NORTH SAANICH — Lawrence Woytowich was recently honoured by awards from Curl BC and Sport BC for his involvement in curling.

Woytowich received two long service awards from both of those organizations. These awards are presented to a volunteer who represents the spirit of volunteerism, and whose dedication, energy, and commitment contribute to development of their sport or organization in the province.

The awards were a result of many years of volunteer work at Glen Meadows Curling Club, provincially with Curl BC, Pacific Coast Masters Curling Association, BC Senior Games and Nationally with Canada Senior Games. This included sitting on all of the boards and expanding programs for Senior Curlers.   — Submitted
