My wife and I moved to Penticton this summer and from the local library I read a book titled Gold Mine to Gold Medal and Beyond by local resident Ivan McLelland.
The book is a great inspiration for anybody who aspires to be the best they can, be it sports or whatever you do best. It’s a book I couldn’t put down.
About a small town team that accomplished one of the biggest victory’s Canada has ever achieved in hockey, when few people outside Penticton gave them much of a chance. It’s also about life, living a dream and overcoming hurdles.
Gold Mine to Gold Medal and Beyond is not only a marvelous ambassador for Penticton but the entire country, as is the person who penned it. Here’s hoping your wish comes true Ivan, and I’m sure the Alzheimer’s Society would agree.
