Creator(s): New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame
In small towns and villages throughout New Brunswick, sports have always been an integral part of the fabric of the community. As such, rural communities have made an important and lasting contribution to New Brunswick's sports heritage. None have done more so than the international border town of St. Stephen, situated on the St. Croix River across from Calais, Maine, U.S. In sports, as in life, each generation inspires the next, and even today, those who "play sports" in St. Stephen hold a special place in the hearts and minds of those who live and work there. Hometown Sports Heroes highlights the remarkable achievements of these athletes and teams that have been an integral part of community life in St. Stephen dating from the early 1900s to the present day.
