National Volunteer Week: Bob Keays

Hockey New Brunswick would like to highlight volunteer Bob Keays and his outstanding work with Officials in the province of New Brunswick. Bob was named the 2017 Hockey New Brunswick Volunteer of the year and was instrumental in bringing the Don Koharski Official Development Camp to the Saint John area. Bob also introduced an Officiating Committee in Region 4, which was very proactive in providing support and development for officials. “Bob joined us this year and has done an amazing job with our referees. He has worked tirelessly booking refs for games and tournaments; mentored the younger referees and provided clinics all while bring the Referee in Chief for the Saint John Youth Association. One association is a lot to handle, but Bob did this for two associations and has been a pleasure to have on our board”, said Lancaster Minor Hockey President Kelly DeLucry. “Bob also organized a “Hockey Blood Drive” in Southern NB through the Canadian Blood Services which was a huge success during the holiday season.” For all of your contributions to the game of hockey, refereeing and going above and beyond, Hockey New Brunswick celebrates Bob Keays during National Volunteer Week.
