In Memoriam: Anna Marchand
Field hockey lost a good friend, Anna Marchand, last week on July 9th. Anna was an Ontario, BC and Canadian national player in the 60's and 70's, also a Rambler / Tiger club member for "eons".

She was an amazing player, a joy for all who played with her: tenacious, skilled in brain and performance and the perfect teammate. "Forever" a BCWFHF executive / council member for over 20 years, a valued contributor in all aspects.

She will be missed.
