Goodbye John…

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend, John Kiddie. To Glenmore, John was a lot more than simply a bartender. He was a great friend and a family member. To visitors, John was a fixture of Glenmore. Without him, our curling club won’t ever be the same.

John, you will be missed deeply. May you rest in peace.

Our deepest condolences to Suzie, John’s family as well as the Savard family and all his many friends.
