Passing of long time member and Past President Jim Laird

The Brampton Lawn Bowling Club is saddened by the news of the passing of Jim Laird on Monday February 11, 2019.

Jim was a long time member of our Club and a Past President.  His presence and friendship around our Club will be truly missed by his many friends and fellow bowlers.  Jim was an avid and accomplished bowler and a true Scottish gentleman.  He was well known for his love of wearing his Scottish kilt to Club events and his skills at the barbeque for Club dinners.  His enthusiastic support of Club activities was most appreciated.  Jim also generously volunteered his support on the greens to the Club's Power Bowlers Group.
