C.M.H.A. History

The Campbellford Minor Hockey Association was formed in 1958 by members of the Rotary, Legion and Kinsmen Clubs, and joined by the Lions Club in 1959. Representatives of these clubs were: Hector Macmillan, Howard Wilson, George Bibby, Dante Pace, Ray McKinnon, Lloyd Bullen, along with Bill Rothwell, who organized the local school league, which acted as a practice and training ground for All-Star teams. The league played at the Bridge Street and Kent Public Schools.

In 1971, the Campbellford Minor Hockey Association was incorporated; the first Directors were Bill Machesney, Tom Christie, Ken Hulsman, Bill Storey, Brian Runions and George Bibby.

In 1984, the name was changed to Campbellford and District Minor Hockey Association and the number of Directors increased from six to nine.

In 1994 the number of Directors was increased from nine to eleven.

On April 15, 2000, the Operations Guide, consisting of the Interpretation of Objects, By-Laws and Policy Manual, replaced the Constitution.
