Congratulations to the 2018 Harvey Buchan Memorial Bursary Recipients
Posted: Aug 15, 2018

A day on the golf course helped  give a boost to some local youth who are pursuing post-secondary dreams. The Association held its 26th annual Harvey Buchan Memorial Golf Tournament at Crimson Ridge Golf Course on August 10th. The proceeds from the tournament allowed the Association to provide bursaries to five local students, who are beginning their post-secondary education.  Tiana Bressan, Joshua Brunet, Ashley Mueller, Anthony Principe, and Joshua Rouleau were presented with bursaries in memory of Harvey Buchan. Up until his passing in 1992, Harvey was a local construction industry leader and long-time supporter of the Sault Ste. Marie Construction Association. The local construction association has been giving these educational bursaries away since 1993.

                “This is one of many examples of our members giving back to the community. Many of our members have been participating in or supporting this event for 26 years. This is yet another example of members of our Association giving back to the community,” said Adam Pinder, SSMCA Executive Director. 

                The bursaries are funded solely through the sales of hole sponsorships; which were completely sold out this year. Hole sponsors for this event included: Avery Construction, Algoma Workforce Investment Corporation, Commercial Concrete, Eaton, Elliot Engineering, Ellwood Robinson, Henderson Metal, Lifebreath, Lyons TimberMart, McLeod Bros. Mechanical, Mike Moore Construction, Miramar, Northern, O.C.P. Construction Supplies Inc, Permanent Electric. Pioneer Construction, Professional Engineers of Ontario – Sault Ste. Marie Chapter, Ro-Von Steel Inc., S. & T. Group, Service Rentals and Sales, Soo Mill, Soo Yard Works, Tulloch Engineering, Winmar, and WSP.
