Bonnie Cochrane Award CanSkater Medals Club Bursary
Coaches Choice Award Doreen McKay Haza Award Gold Achievers Award
Leading Personality Award Program Assistant Award Purvis Gallery Award
In 1982 Bonnie Cochrane, a 15 year old Senior skater with the Pembroke Skating Club, lost her life in a traffic accident.
Bonnie had been a skater with the Club for a number of years. She was a true athlete, actively involved in all facets of the sport.
In 1987 the Pembroke Skating Club created this memorial Award in her honour, to promote those qualities that Bonnie possessed. Bonnie's parents, Mr. & Mrs. Wally Cochrane, were consulted on this award. They, along with Bonnie's siblings Susan and Boyd, have continued to support the Club in all its endeavours.
This award is also a tribute to a family who have suffered the loss of their daughter and sister.

"For the individual skater that demonstrates passion and commitment to the sport"
The 'Leading Personality Award' for the CanSkate session, was started in the 1995/1996 skating season by Ken Yates (then-owner of Goldstream Jewellers).
Each year a boy and/or girl is chosen for their outstanding personality qualities based on the Boy Scout Creed.
The child must be between the ages of 8-10 years, and displays the following qualities on an every day basis: Trustworthiness, loyalty, helpfulness, friendliness, courtesy, kindness, obedience, cheefulness, thrift, bravery, cleanliness, and reverence.
All of these qualities are outlined in depth in the 'Boy Scout and His Law' book.
This award is to give children the recognition they deserve for their outstanding personalities and encourage them to continue as role models for the others.
