Two legends of lacrosse from the Durham Region will be inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame on November 13, 2010 at the Firefighter’s Club in Burnaby, British Columbia. It is a great honour to say that I know both Terry Lloyd and John Fusco, and my congratulations go out to both of them on a very deserving acknowledgement. I know that their contributions to our game have been, and continue to be appreciated by so many.
