Big boost for Bor­der Hockey

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier, Stanstead

Ap­par­ently,

there’s noth­ing like a mother and son mu­si­cal team to pack the house. About 125 peo­ple at­tended the din­ner, held at the Pat Burns Arena last Satur­day night, while Lise Flan­ders en­ter­tained them from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, and well over 300 peo­ple

at­tended the Dance that fol­lowed and fea­tured her fa­mous son, Dany. The whole event was a fundraiser for the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey As­so­ci­a­tion.

“We were able to raise about $5000 and the whole event was very well re­ceived,” said Dave Dubois, the pres­i­dent of the As­so­ci­a­tion. “Ev­ery­one seemed to have a great time and Lise and Dany were both ex­cel­lent. In­clud­ing our golf tour­na­ment, we’ve raised about $10,000 in the last month.”

“I’d like to thank Brad Craw­ford and the other vol­un­teers who helped, Lise Houle who runs the restau­rant, Stanstead Col­lege for giv­ing us the use of the arena, and the many prize spon­sors. The money will be used to buy ice time,” added the pres­i­dent.

The hockey games will be start­ing up soon but there is still plenty of time to reg­is­ter to play. “We got a lot of new kids this year, gain­ing a few at the younger ages which is good,” said Mr. Dubois. Chil­dren aged from 4 to 16 can join this lo­cal hockey league. For more in­for­ma­tion call Dave Dubois at 819 876-7606.
