Induction ceremony set for Tuesday in Charlottetown

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. —

Five athletes will be inducted into the Prince Edward Island Curling Hall of Fame and Museum when it hosts its 13th annual induction ceremony Tuesday at the Charlottetown Curling Complex.
This year’s inductees are Mike Dillon, John Likely and Shelley Muzika, all from Charlottetown, Leslie MacDougall from Cornwall and Dr. Wayne Matheson, a former resident of both Summerside and Charlottetown, who now resides in Sudbury, Ont.
“Recognizing the accomplishments of curlers and builders who have dedicated their time and energy to the sport of curling is an important component of our curling history,” said Jerry Muzika, chairman of the Hall of Fame and Museum.
Curl P.E.I. president Sandy Matheson said she is very pleased the Hall is continuing its work to recognize curlers and builders and looks forward to attending the event.
The Hall’s main objectives are to recognize, honour and pay tribute to individuals or teams on the basis of playing ability, as an amateur or a professional in the curler category, and to individuals who have given distinguished service and have made major contributions to the development of sport on Prince Edward Island through the builder category.
The event, which will be hosted by Paul H. Schurman, gets underway at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 per person and available at the door.
The Hall’s permanent home is located in the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O'Leary. Charcoal portraits of the members are displayed at the top of the stairway in the club’s main entrance.
With this year’s five inductees, the Hall of Fame, which was started in 2007, grows to 74 members.
