Join us to hear from local author David W. Scott, as he discusses his decades-long passion project for telling Huron County’s hockey stories: resulting in the books Huron County’s Hockey Heroes and First Overtime: Huron County Hockey Heroes’ Sequel.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: David W. Scott has been working on his books for a few decades, delayed by full-time work as an editor at the Seaforth Huron Expositor, Zurich/Grand Bend Lakeshore Advance and then at American Heart Association’s Stroke medical journal in London. Scott was editor of Western University’s Alumni Gazette magazine from July 2004 to January 2016. As a playwright, two of the three stage plays he had produced that premiered at the Blyth Festival had multiple had multiple out of province productions, including The Ballad of Stompin’ Tom. He was the last mayor of the Town of Seaforth from 1998 to 2000 before amalgamation and the creation of Huron East. He’s had an active interest in hockey going back to his youth. He played neighbourhood road hockey and backyard rink hockey at the Morton’s when Don faithfully flooded their backyard that faced the fields of Scott’s family farm on the northwest edge of Seaforth.

Back doing his third tour of duty living in Seaforth, Huron County after stopovers in Toronto (1984-92) and in London (Ontario! 2005-2017). And an overlap at the Bluewater Beach cottage near Goderich from 2007 to 2022 David lives with his wife and common-sense coach Becky and three Australian blue heelers all named for musicians: (Bob) Marley and brothers Buddy (Guy) and (Bob) Seger. And buried close by, the late (Bob) Dylan (dog version… not iconic songwriter).
