On Saturday May 1st, 2010 over 300 friends and family celebrated the achievements of Bob Beaumont, Pete Conacher, Roger Galipeau (posthumously), and Rick Thomas as they were inducted into the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame. Each Inductee was profiled in a DVD tribute and was presented with a personalized Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Jersey and an engraved piece of Georgian Bay stone. Jackson Kuhn was presented the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame Top Defenseman Award for the second time. Following the Inductee presentations, Canadian Astronaut Dr. Robert Thirsk gave a short presentation on his personal accomplishments through the Canadian Space Agency.
The evening was capped off with a few words from Bobby Orr congratulating all of the Inductees and an autograph session with the Inductees, Bobby Orr, and Dr. Thirsk. Thank you to all who came to support our Inductees and the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame.
A special thanks to Dr. Thirsk who returned on Wednesday May 5th, 2010 to give 2 presentations to local area school children. We are very thankful for Dr. Thirsk’s involvement in the Parry Sound & area Community!
