Ted Pendle, THANK YOU for your MANY years of service as Treasurer!
After 34 years as Tresurer, Ted Pendle has decided to step back from his role as Tresurer for the Sarnia Hockey Association.

In 1989, Ted answered a want ad for Sarnia Township Minor Hockey posted in the Clearwater Arena for the position of Treasurer. Ted was accepted by Sarnia Township Minor Hockey as Treasurer and started in that role in September of 1989. In 1990 Sarnia Township Minor Hockey became Clearwater Minor Hockey Association, and again in 1992 became East Sarnia Hockey Association. Following East Sarnia Hockey Association and Sarnia Minor Hockey Association amalgamating in 1998, Sarnia Hockey Association was formed as a combined OMHA and Alliance Hockey, and Ted was named treasurer of the newly amalgamated association. In 2006 SHA left the OMHA and remained a 100% member of Alliance Hockey. Ted was also Treasurer of the Clearwater Ball Hockey League for several years and treasurer for Sarnia Township Minor Athletic Association until it folded in the 1990s. Ted also led the registration for SHA for many years.


Throughout all these significant changes and various challenges, Ted remained as the Treasurer, providing financial leadership, and continuity between the different organizations. It is not an easy decision to step away from day-to-day operations when you have been involved over all those years. It was only after long deliberations and discussions with Kathy that Ted came to the decision to step back and make way for someone new to take on the role of treasure and continue with a high level of financial oversight. Ted will stay on to assist the transition once SHA has found a capable replacement.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ted for all his years of leader ship, and the various hockey and sport organizations.
