Carl Galli – President's Award, 2006
Carl Galli is West Hamiton born and has lived in Ancaster since 1988. Carl and his wife, Carla,
have 3 daughters; Andrea 17, Laura 15 and Nicole 12 years of age.
Carl is a Chartered Accountant by profession and many will know the family run business, Galli
Homes, which he leads. Galli Homes is a major business community player here, now operating
in Ancaster for 20 years.
Carl's family have been involved with AYSC for 12 years. All 3 children play in the AYSC
system. Carl is a spectator, catching all that he can of his girls games, he also has been a Coach
for 3-4 years in the past, and presently, is a major sponsor of the AYSC. Most of you will have
seen Galli Homes proudly displayed on the shirts of many of our House League teams!
His company's generous finacial gifts have helped AYSC grow quickly to the size it is today.
This Club cannot provide the service that it does without the recurring sponsorship help provided
by the business community. Companies see respected businesses like Galli Homes active in the
community and are encouraged to support clubs like AYSC, which in turn, make this community
a great place to live.
Fortunately, for Ancaster Soccer, Carl has vision. 2-3 years ago he wrote to our local councillor,
Murry Ferguson, and suggestd the old dump on Jerseyville Road be transformed into soccer
fields for the use of the Ancaster community. Knowing the situation with regards to lack of
soccer field space here in Ancaster he has continued to be involved in this project since its
inception. He uses his skills and knowledge of land development attending meetings and dealing
with the City on respective planning and scheduling matters.
To ensure the success of the project he has encouraged his business partner, Ed Morwick, to be a
major benefactor in this endeavour. The park will bare the name 'Morwick Park' in recogntion of
the generous donation of 100,000 dollars towards the construction of the park by his partner.
The development of the park alone makes Carl a very worthy candidate for this award, but, it is
his past coaching and continuing team sponsorhip support that make him a stand out.
The future growth of AYSC is assured with people like Carl Galli on our side. This Club
appreciates his involvement over the years, and especially, his leadership with respect to the
Morwick Park development. AYSC thank his family for their support and we are proud to
bestow the honour of the President's Award, 2006, on him.
