On Monday, April 28 the Meaford Skating Club held its annual awards banquet at the Meaford Golf Course. A delicious meal prepared by Mary Alderdice and her team was enjoyed by all prior to the awards presentations.

Awards were given out as follows:
Shooting Star of the Year: Emily Smith

Senior of the Year: Emma Fulford
These awards were given based on most tests passed over the course of the season.

Program Assistant of the Year: Madi Cornelisse
President’s Choice Award: Teagan Davies (given for best competition results this season)
Coach’s Recognition Award: Kirstin Knight (given for best all around skater in academics and school sports and clubs)
