This past week, BC Lacrosse lost another member of its family as Sandra Tackaberry passed away. Sandra was the past president of the North Delta Intermediate B Hawks club, and was very active with minor lacrosse in the North Delta community. Her husband Geordie coached the Hawks and her son George was a player for the Hawks, eventually moving on to Junior and presently in Senior C.
A celebration of Sandra's life will be held at 2:00pm, Saturday March 11th at the Gilmore Park United Church, 8060 No 1 Rd, Richmond.
