Volunteer Of The Year Goes To John Benvie
Submitted By Dan Thompson on Saturday, May 1, 2010
For the past four years the Terriers have recognized and awarded a Volunteer of the Year on their opening day. The award is named after Terriers Senior Advisor Ed Heather who has spent a lifetime donating his time to community sport. During the Terriers opening day ceremony on Sunday May 2nd, John Benvie will be presented with this years' Ed Heather Award for his outstanding contribution to baseball in the community.

For more than 25 years John has been very active at several levels of the game touching many young men's lives through his tireless volunteer work as a coach, manager and instructor. He has sat on several boards and committees where he served as an executive and also President of both Guelph Minor Baseball and most recently the Terriers. On the field, John is responsible for grooming numerous players that have gone on to play at the provincial, national, college and pro level. His players are also good citizens and as the years pass, he still maintains strong friendships with many of them. Congratulations John, and thank you for your time, expertise and generosity.
