Cameron McDonald was born at the Century Farm, Lot 37, 7th Concession of Lancaster on February 3rd, 1920 and spent his entire life there. His love of everything in nature developed from growing up on the farm. His experiences as hunter, fisherman, trapper and tracker led to a thorough knowledge of field and stream.
His lifelong interest in hockey began on local ponds and outdoor rinks. He was involved in hockey as a player for the Alexandria Maroons and the Border Hockey League, as well as coaching several teams.
In the mid-40's, he played softball for the Glengarry Aces. In a 1971 invitational tournament he hit his final home run at age 51 and won the game trophy for St. Raphael's. Cameron also played Box Lacrosse from 1946-1950 with the Alexandria Maroons, and later coached the Green Valley Rockets.
Cameron McDonald's involvement in sports included more than coaching and playing, as he was a charter member of the Glengarry Sports Hall of Fame and a director for 22 years. Cameron is being inducted posthumously as he passed away on June 25, 2002. He will be remembered as an upstanding citizen, for his sporting contributions and dedication to coaching many young Glengarry athletes.
