Tim Annesley Hockey Tournament: 26 years of supporting the community

By Taylor McClure, Special to The Record

The Tim Annesley Hockey Tournament, a local community fundraiser, is quickly making its way around the corner and it will provide a full weekend of hockey fun. Taking place from April 24 to April 26, the tournament, organized in honor of Tim Annesley, has been supporting various local organizations, groups, institutions and causes for over 25 years. Started in 1995, the tournament has become a popular event in the community, but volunteers and teams are still needed to make the event a special one. Tim Annesley, a local to Lennoxville, was working for Pro-Par when he lost his life in an unfortunate accident in 1995.
Annesley was an active hockey player. He played games every weekend and took part in tournaments with his team, and when his close-knit group of hockey friends found out about his death, they wanted to find a way to help support his family. That’s when they started organizing the Tim Annesley Hockey Tournament as a fundraiser for his wife and daughter. “We started an education fund for his daughter,” said Larry Paradis, one of the organizers of the tournament since the very beginning.
