The Kincardine Bulldogs of the PJHL’s Pollock Division are thrilled to announce that Dar-Lyn Pools and Spas of Kincardine will be the new Major Sponsor of the team.
Lynda and Harold Maurer, owners of the five decades-old Dar-Lyn Pools and Spas, are lifelong supporters of the Bulldogs and minor sports in Kincardine. The couple’s longstanding involvement in the Bulldogs dates back to the club’s inception when Harold worked with the executive committee to bring junior hockey back to Kincardine and area. Harold served on the executive for the team’s inaugural season in 1994-95.
Lynda and Harold have been huge supporters of local sports in Kincardine and the surrounding area for more than sixty years. Their countless hours and dedication to young athletes and grassroots sports organizations in Kincardine is well known throughout the area.
Their businesses – Dar-Lyn Pools and Spas, and Jean’s Family Restaurant – have sponsored youth sports dating back to the 1970s, and they have also supported junior and intermediate hockey in the municipality since Harold was General Manager of the original Kincardine Bulldogs intermediate team back in the ’60s.
“My mom and dad have lived, breathed and loved the Bulldogs since they came back,” said Darren Maurer, the couple’s son and a member the team’s current executive committee. “Howie has often said that he would like to be the major sponsor one day, so it’s an exciting day for both he and my mom.”
“Please join us as an organization and community in welcoming Dar-Lyn Pools and Spas, Lynda, Harold and their family as our new major sponsor,” said club president David Patterson. “The Bulldogs look forward to showing their appreciation to Dar-Lyn Pools and Spas for their support with a team, executive, and volunteers that will be first-class ambassadors for the business, and for Lynda and Harold.”
The Provincial Junior Hockey League season has been put on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic. League officials have held regular meetings to prepare for a possible season.
