The memory of the father of three and 22-year veteran of the force is kept alive to this day by Insp. Malbeuf who, along with his team of volunteers, continues to organize and hold the Rob Plunkett Softball Tournament, now in its seventh year.
"It's all about remembering this great guy," Insp. Malbeuf said from Saturday's tournament at the York Regional Police Association facility at Bayview and Stonehaven avenues. "A lot of the new guys will have never met Rob, but they all know him because of this tournament. At the end of the day, we all sit down for a beer and tell stories of the good days and remember him. It's pretty sad and I didn't want his legacy to be forgotten."
The tournament involves 15 teams and has been wildly successful, raising more than $100,000 for Special Olympics and a host of other York Region charities including this year's recipient, Newmarket's Doane House Hospice.
All at the Oasis Program today were thrilled to be serenaded during a surprise concert by the wonderful ‘Singchronized’ from the Upper Canada Chorusmen Chorus featuring Don Fernandes, Dave Leitch, Mark Robinson, and Al Verwey. They treated us to Valentine’s themed songs whilst we admired their dapper attire finished off by fetching love-heart ties! What a treat! Thank you ‘Singchronized’!
Art Therapy is a different approach to traditional talk therapy, where participants can use the art process to express thoughts and feelings they may not know how to otherwise express.
