Over 160 Friends Gather to Recognize Ted and Barb Dallimore


Instead of working for a living, Barb and Ted Dallimore of Sandy Cove Marine in Innisfil, are now working at living. They are newly retired and are planning to travel in their motor home. Friends shared their experiences over the decades wishing Barb and Ted well in their retirement.

Doug and Brenda Dawson joined 160 other marine friends and business associates who gathered to celebrate Ted and Barb’s retirement.

Many in attendance were also celebrating “Survival”. They shared memories and experiences of huge overwhelming obstacles that they had overcome, allowing them to stay in the marine industry that we all love.

The event at the Holiday Inn in Barrie on September 29, 2011, was organized by Judy Richardson, Lizanne Madigan and Terry Smith.
