Anna Gainey recently returned to Roslyn Elementary School in Westmount. She is the daughter of Montreal Canadiens general manager and former team captain Bob Gainey and the executive director of the Gainey Foundation (www.gaineyfoundation.com). She was reunited with her former science teacher, Roger Parent. Speaking to Grade 6 students, Anna explained how after the sudden passing two years ago of her sister Laura, the third of Bob Gainey’s four children, the family decided to honour both Laura and her late mother, Cathy who passed away in 1995, with a foundation dedicated to funding environmental and arts programs for youth. The foundation’s goal is to raise $2 million by 2010 in support of this objective, building a lasting and fitting legacy for two special people.
