National Day of Truth and Reconciliation, September 30, 2021

In observance of this important day, the Burnaby Field Lacrosse Club has asked the teams choosing to hold practices this week to take the following actions:

  1.      Land acknowledgment

    We [I] would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we are fortunate to gather is the traditional and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.

    2.       National Day of Truth and Reconciliation

    As you may or may not know, lacrosse has its origins in a tribal game played by Indigenous peoples in what is now Canada and the United States.  While hockey is Canada’s national winter sport, lacrosse is our national summer.

    National Day for Truth and Reconciliation is an opportunity for us to recognize and reflect on the tragic history and ongoing legacy of residential schools, and to honour the survivors, their families and communities.  Recent discoveries of the remains of children at the sites of former residential schools affirm what Indigenous peoples have been speaking about for decades.  This grief and loss continue to impact the lives of Indigenous peoples and their families.  Every child matters.

    3.       Minute of silence and reflection

    Please ask your team to take a minute of silence to reflect on the significance of today.

  1.      Encourage wearing of orange shirts

    Please ask your team to wear orange shirts if they have them.

Message From Past President, Brad Romano

Dear BFLC Families,

I notified the club executive of my resignation as President back in April, to become official on May 4 after the club executive had a chance to meet.

On the evening of May 3, 2021, your BFLC Executive has confirmed Simon Gee as the new President of Burnaby Field Lacrosse Club. Congratulations to Simon, a long time executive member and volunteer with both our club and the Burnaby Lakers Minor Lacrosse Club. As per the club bylaws, the executive may confirm someone to a role if that role is vacant at any time during the term or if not elected at the AGM.

At the recent Pacific Coast Field Lacrosse League I was nominated for the role of Chair and I accepted the nomination and the role. It was a difficult decision to leave the Burnaby executive with a year left. However, after discussion with, and encouragement from, the executive, I decided to take the plunge.

Your current executive is a dedicated group of individuals with whom it was my pleasure to work with for the past 3 years as President. We have parents from all age groups represented on our board – all of whom contribute in various ways with the club and with our League.

Thank-you to all our families, players, coaches, managers, past executive, and other club volunteers that have been involved over the past years. The club does not run without volunteers at all levels.

The past year has been a stressful one and I, for one, look forward to what we’ll be able to do in September as a League.

 

With my thanks and best regards,

Brad Romano

Past President Burnaby Field Lacrosse Club

Chair, Pacific Coast Field Lacrosse League
