As our Annual Treaty Day’s kick off, Fisher River Cree Nation are proud to announce the renaming of the recreation grounds to – the Carl “Poggy” Cochrane Sports & Recreation Grounds.
The renaming was made official today with the family of Poggy on hand. A monument was built along with new signage for the grounds.
Before Carl began his journey, the leadership heard the people, and the decision was a simple one to make, the Chief & Council of Fisher River Cree Nation are honored to announce that the Fisher River Cree Nation Recreation Grounds to the Carl “Poggy” Cochrane Sports & Recreation Grounds. The leadership met with Carl and his family to deliver the news and Carl had sent his blessings to move forward with the renaming of the Recreation Grounds.
In addition, the two baseball diamonds were also renamed in Carl’s honour and the teachings he displayed and walked with – The Diamond of Hope and The Diamond of Courage.
We greatly thank the family and friend of Carl for their support in this initiative and to all the individuals that helped to make this a reality💛
