While living in MA he was a Regional Director for the New England Horseshoe Pitchers Association and the Director of the Hamilton Horseshoe Club from which he put on yearly demonstrations at the Topsfield Fair to spread his love of the game to young and old. George's other loves included fishing, ballroom dancing and late in life he took up painting as another hobby, as a member of the Tara Estates "Silver Pallettes" art group were he lived and winning many awards in local fairs held each Autumn, but he was extremely proud of his scratchboard art which he gratefully handed out to his caretakers at the VA.
