Public Invited to Forbes Kennedy Recognition Open House
Posted on 07/31/2019
The public is invited to attend a special event in honour of Canadian retired professional ice hockey player Forbes Kennedy, as part of the City of Charlottetown’s Natal Day Weekend Celebrations.

Forbes Kennedy played in the National Hockey League from 1956-1969. After his retirement from the professional league, he coached hockey and baseball locally for decades.

The Forbes Kennedy Recognition Open House will take place at Beaconsfield Carriage House (2 Kent Street) on Sunday, August 4 at 6 p.m. There will be light refreshments served. Memorabilia will be on display for the public to enjoy, followed by a formal street naming announcement and the presentation of the Forbes Kennedy Volunteer of the Year Award.

The award will be presented to an individual who volunteered a significant amount of unpaid hours; demonstrated initiative, leadership and creativity in their service to others; and who serves as an inspiration and role model for others.
