When the wheelchair curling program began 10 years ago in Lennoxville, it was the first of its kind in the region.
Over the years, the Lennoxville members, able-bodied and wheelchair-bound alike, have grown into a big family.
It is a challenging time these days, as the club mourns the loss of three members of the wheelchair curling program; Denis Grenier, Johanne Poulin and Anne-Marie Vanasse, all of whom passed away in recent weeks.
“Each one in their own way contributed to the program,” said Alfred Whittier, who first started the wheelchair curling program in 2008.
