On Friday February 20, 2015 the Steelers held “Bob Jefferson Night” in honor of Bob Jefferson who passed away in December 2013. Bob was a long time supporter and true friend to the Steelers and considered a dear part of the Steelers family. Bob was also a tremendous supporter to many groups and organizations throughout Selkirk and the surrounding communities.
The Steelers in partnership with Century 21 Jefferson and Associates and with the support of the City of Selkirk dedicated section 24 at the Selkirk Recreation Complex as “Bob Jefferson Corner”. A sign was erected on the wall in memory of Bob who will remain in our hearts forever.
Bob’s sister Doreen Sisto had the honor or dropping the puck to start the game in memory of her brother. A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for the game is being donated to the Selkirk and District Community Foundation in Bob’s name. Thanks to the tremendous support of our game sponsors Investors Group, Steelcity Physiotherapy and Wellness Centre and The Selkirk Journal.
