Martens Win Award for Volunteer Dedication (Nov. 2016)


Rolf and Diane Martens “go the distance” to support the Fenelon Falls Curling Club. In addition to taking on leadership roles on the executive, convening several leagues and running several bonspiels each year, they have organized fundraising trips to Europe for the past 12 years. Their friendly faces are seen at the club every day of the week, greeting people and making them feel welcome. The daytime leagues that Rolf and Diane run contribute to the sports social fabric of the community and support the “sports for life” philosophy. The monies that Rolf and Diane have raised have contributed to the sustainability of the club through the purchase of equipment for the youth programme, renovations to the kitchen and washrooms of the club and replacement of some well used furniture!

Nominated by Gail Allman
