Description

Bette Sullivan was intrigued one night as she watched ringette being played during an intermission feature on Hockey Night in Canada. She obtained some literature on ringette from a cousin in Ontario, lobbied for ice-time with the Newcastle Recreation Commission, attracted a group of about eighty girls to give it a try, and the rest is history. Since 1974 Bette has been devoted to providing opportunities in sport for young women, not only in ringette, but in softball and other recreational pursuits. The history of ringette in New Brunswick had its beginnings on the Miramichi and from 1973 to the mid 80s, Bette Sullivan was the primary motivator of its growth in her community
