BUCHANS, N.L. – Sup­port­ers and mem­bers of the Buchans Mi­nors Hockey team gath­ered at the James Hor­nell Boys and Girls Club Tues­day, June 19 for their clos­ing ban­quet.

Or­ga­niz­ers Paula White and Carolyn Rowsell have headed up the mi­nor hockey group and have en­joyed the time spent with play­ers. They also wanted to ex­press ap­pre­ci­a­tion for the sup­port they have re­ceived.

Each of the youth vol­un­teers was pre­sented with a gift cer­tifi­cate in ap­pre­ci­a­tion from Mi­nor Hockey as well as a par­tic­i­pa­tion cer­tifi­cate.

“With­out you as vol­un­teers, this would not be pos­si­ble,” White said.

The cor­po­rate spon­sors have al­lowed each of the play­ers to pur­chase their Buchans Mi­nor Hockey jer­seys at a re­duced cost. The group also re­ceived a do­na­tion of $3,000 from the Ho­tel and Restau­rant Work­ers Union, Lo­cal 779. Those spon­sors, as well as the Town of Buchans were in­cluded in White’s words of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.

Hockey sou­venirs fea­tur­ing a jersey and pair of skates were pur­chased from funds raised at the can­teen dur­ing the Am­ber Chip­pett Me­mo­rial Skate-a-Thon in March. Am­ber’s mom, Michelle Chip­pett painted each of them in the team mem­bers’ names and their jersey num­bers, mak­ing them very unique keep­sakes.


Mem­bers of Buchans Mi­nor Hockey held their clos­ing ban­quet at the James Hor­nell Boys and Girls Club Tues­day, June 19. To com­mem­o­rate the oc­ca­sion they had a cake fea­tur­ing a photo of the team which they gath­ered around for a team photo with their youth coaches and vol­un­teers.


The Buchans Mi­nor Hockey team are very lucky to have youth vol­un­teers who of­fer as­sis­tance through­out the sea­son. One of those vol­un­teers is An­drew Eveleigh. Pic­tured is Paula White, one of the team’s or­ga­niz­ers pre­sent­ing Eveleigh with a gift cer­tifi­cate to a lo­cal restau­rant as a to­ken of ap­pre­ci­a­tion.


Each of the play­ers in Buchans Mi­nor Hockey re­ceived a sou­venir of their year on the team. These were pur­chased us­ing funds raised in the can­teen at the Am­ber Chip­pett Me­mo­rial Skate-a-thon in March. Am­ber’s mom, Michelle Chip­pett per­son­al­ized each of the fig­urines with the mem­ber’s name and jersey num­ber.
