Monday, December 12 saw some excitement at the regularly scheduled Little Rock practice at the Morrisburg Curling Club when Variety 104.5 arrived to surprise Morrisburg curler, Ewan Wilson, with the December “Kid with Class” prize.
Ewan has been a recreational curler in Morrisburg since he was four. That year he curled in the Easter Seal Bonspiel. He has been a Morrisburg Little Rocker for three years.
Eight year old Ewan is very active and while he owns video games, he is more likely to be found playing a sport… most sports… any sport!!!!
He is a leader on his South Stormont Selects Novice C hockey team (practicing, in borrowed goalie gear, with the team’s goalie so, “she doesn’t have to do it alone.”)
This year he took up broomball, and he is a now a member of the Finch Lightening Squirt team.
For his summers, Ewan plays soccer in Long Sault, golfs at Archies and plays baseball with the Cornwall River Rats!
He runs too, and is an alumni of Ottawa Race Weekend, The Heather Saaltink Run and The Perth Kilt Run. To top it all off he maintains good grades and keeps his grandparents loved, busy and entertained!
Variety 104 is a radio station serving the Cornwall area. Its “Kid With Class” program honours amazing young people from Cornwall and area who excel in sports, academics, community service, music, the arts etc.
The awards are given out monthly during the school year and include a huge assortment of wonderful gifts.
On hand at the curling club to present Ewan with his “Kids With Class” award were Variety 104’s Jimmy Kalaitzis, Sue Stewart and Darryl Adams.
