Athletics has always been a significant part of Ed’s life.  He was a fastball pitcher and 1st baseman, 5 pin bowler, played in the Stelco shinny hockey league, participated at the Westdale Barbell Club, Spittles Gym, YMCA, and the St. Mary’s Boxing Club.  For twenty years he played in the HWDSPA slow pitch league and still plays in the HOSSA league where he’s been for fifteen years.  Ed continues to be active in the Hamilton Police Association snooker league.
 
In 1992 Ed joined Rotary and is one of our charter members (1995).

For enjoyment Ed reads, rides his motorcycle, shoots snooker, plays guitar, harmonica and recently retired as a slo-pitch league photographer. He loves to travel and has, so far, been to 28 countries. 
 
Favourite quote:  The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He makes no mistakes because he attempts nothing. He never tries anything new, and is therefore a brake on the wheels of progress.
About Our Club
 
 
Our Mission is to provide service to others, locally and internationally, we promote integrity, high ethical standards and goodwill through the fellowship of Stoney Creek businesses, professionals and community leaders.
 
Our vision is to become an engaged and diverse Club, fostering learning, leadership and fellowship while providing Service Above Self to areas of need locally and internationally.
     
In 1992 a number of community-minded business people met weekly for food, fun and fellowship.
 
Each represented a distinct business or professional classification.  The result is a broad spectrum of experience and idea. 
 
Being a Rotarian means being able to enrich the lives of others, while discovering a world of personal enrichment through service.
