Please join with us in congratulating ‘the big guy’ Bill Brownridge on his latest monumental achievement — INDUCTED into the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame.
Here is the Hall of Fame entry:
“Growing up in the 1930s with spina bifida, Bill Brownridge channeled his love of sport, particularly hockey, into areas where he could excel, as an author and a painter. For more than 70 years Bill has captured the spirit of hockey in those two mediums. He has written five children’s picture books and is an internationally recognized artist. He designed the logo of the Calgary Centennials junior hockey team, one iteration of the Calgary Flames uniforms and was the official artist of the 1988 Calgary Olympic bid. His paintings were a catalyst for the creation of Hockey Day in Canada.”
The presentation ceremony is in September 2022.
Kudos again to Bill, very much deserved indeed.
