The Town of Huntsville is pleased to announce that the Commemorative Naming Program for Town Assets has received two applications that are now open for public engagement. The Community can vote on whether they support the proposals to name a change room in the Don Lough Arena at the Canada Summit Centre, and a Soccer Field at the McCully Robertson Recreation Park.

The following surveys will be open from May 13 until June 11 at 4:30pm at

The Mike Brown Room Naming Survey:

Community members have submitted an application to commemorate Mike Brown, for his exceptional community support record, by naming dressing room 8 in the Don Lough Arena at the Canada Summit Centre as “The Mike Brown Room”.

Mike Brown was born and raised in Huntsville and was an avid hockey player and supporter. He cared deeply about the community and worked to help ensure others would be able to experience the community in the same positive ways he did. The Mike Brown Foundation helps to ensure that young people in Muskoka will have access to opportunities through sport that can help shape them into community-minded, welcoming, kind and generous people.

Pollington Field Survey:

The Huntsville Soccer Club has submitted an application to commemorate Graham Pollington, for his exceptional community service record, by naming the north soccer field at the McCulley Roberson Recreation Park as “Pollington Field”.

Graham Pollington had an extraordinary community service record throughout the sports community in Huntsville, especially with the Huntsville Soccer Club for over a decade. He brought considerable benefit to individuals and families in the Town through his tireless volunteer efforts in coaching, mentoring, and fundraising. He also worked to foster equality and reduce discrimination through advocacy for women’s soccer in Muskoka and by helping to keep soccer programs affordable and accessible for local families.

Town staff will be reviewing the survey results and bringing the community feedback to General Committee in June 2024 for their consideration and determination.

The Commemorative Naming of Town Assets is to recognize, on an exceptional basis, significant contributions that individuals or organizations have made to public life and the well-being of the people in Huntsville. To learn more about the program, please visit .
