It is with great honour that we announce Charlie Larson has been inducted into the CARHA Hockey Hall of Fame in the Builder Category. Charlie is a Founder and the Treasurer of the Grimsby Oldtimers Hockey Association (GOHA). Click here for his account of the history of the Grimsby Oldtimers Hockey Association.

Inductees are recognized for the work and dedication required to build the association from infancy to the strong national organization it is today. These strong promoters and leaders of our hockey programs are easily identified, and their stories of commitment are quickly attested to.

Charlie was presented with his award at the 40th Anniversary Celebration. You can read his note of appreciation to the members of the GOHA here and browse the great photos that GOHA President Craig Broijer shared.

Congratulations, Charlie! We thank you for the many years you have dedicated to the sport, your community, and the association. It is a pleasure to present you with this prestigious award.
