Don enjoyed spending time with friends.  A special group (board members) spent lots of time together at breakfast meetings and coffee sessions.  He enjoyed spending time at the lake.  His special place was the Ambrose Trailer Park at Emma Lake spending time fishing and golfing.  It was at the lake where a lot of family time was spent with kids and grandchildren visiting.  Don was a long time Prince Albert Raiders Season ticket holder for 30 years.  He enjoyed going to the games.
