The Napanee Raiders would like to honour the memory of these individuals who generously gave their time and skills to our hockey club over the years...
Beryl Brady joined the Raiders organization in time for the 2014-2015 season and served on the executive for three years leading up to her death in April 2017. For two seasons, she was the
club's treasurer. In addition to doing a fine job with the books, Brady also regularly worked on the front gate, participated in fundraising activities, and even took short-term billet players into her home.
A retired health-care worker, Brady was also an active volunteer within the community and within her church community at Trinity United.
George Magold was the Raiders' equipment manager from 1989 until his death in 2011. Originally from England, Magold moved to Napanee in the 1970s to help build the Lennox Generating Station. A tireless worker, Magold went out of his way to provide support and encouragement for his Raiders. Throughout his years with the club, he was a fixture in penalty boxes around the league and was known and loved by officials and opponents also. Magold believed in keeping ties strong with alumni who had moved on from the club and epitomized the term "Once a Raider, always a Raider."
Outside of hockey, Magold was heavily involved with the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 137 and he also taught drama courses for inmates at the Quinte Detention Centre.
In his memory, George's family has donated an annual award to be given to the Raiders player deemed the best teammate by his peers.

As general manager, he led the organization to its lone Schmalz Cup win in 1993 and a finals experience in 1996. Under his direction, the Raiders finished first in the regular season eight straight times and five league championships. He returned to the team in 2005-2006 and again led the Raiders to a league championship.
A well-respected mentor, McGarvey drove his players to achieve their best and upheld the values of sportsmanship, accountability, and teamwork. Off the ice, he a key figure in Napanee sports. He was part of the committee that raised funds to build the Strathcona Paper Centre and he was a generous supporter of the Raiders and many other sports in Napanee through his business AM Sports.
