TV Cogeco Cornwall has captured the outstanding short documentary award for “A Tribute To The Si Miller Arena” during the annual TV Cogeco Star Awards presentation held recently in Burlington.
“I was really exciting to win this award,” said Chris Rohde, TV Cogeco production assistant. “Thanks to the assistance of community producer Thom Racine and a partnership with the Cornwall Historical Society we were able to share and relive some of the rich history and memories of the Si Miller Arena".
Ed Allard, a recent addition to the Seaway News columnist roster, and a commentator on TV Cogeco, was also feted recently by the broadcaster. Allard was recognized for 10 years of volunteer service at a season-ending wrap party at the Ramada Inn in Cornwall.
