Ted and Barb Dallimore were joined by 165 of their friends, colleagues and family members for a special retirement party held at the Holiday Inn Barrie on Thursday. The Dallimores operated Sandy Cove Marine in Innisfil, ON since 1961.
“There are so many people here that I’d like to thank tonight,” said Ted Dallimore. “The key person, after 45 years, is still my best friend. It’s been a great life that we’ve been through. Thank you so much guys, we really appreciate it.”
Event speakers included the likes of Yamaha Motor Canada’s Rick Layzell as well as previous Mercury representatives Dave Brown and Don Simonson.
The party was organized by some of the Dallimore’s long-time industry friends, including Judy Richardson of JR Media and Terry Smith of Boatdealers.ca.
