Bor­der Hockey gets boost from RBC

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey re­ceived $5000 from RBC on Satur­day, Jan­uary 17th, at the Pat Burns Arena. “We heard about the grant and our trea­surer, Karen Ham­blett, ap­plied. We found out that we re­ceived the grant just be­fore Christ­mas but re­ceived it of­fi­cially on the 17th,” said Emily John­ston, the vice-pres­i­dent of the or­ga­ni­za­tion. The money will be used for ice time and other gen­eral ex­penses. Par­ent mem­bers of the hockey club and vol­un­teers or­ga­nize sev­eral fundrais­ers a year to help keep reg­is­tra­tion costs down for the roughly 120 young hockey play­ers. “The $5000 is like the amount we would get from do­ing two fundrais­ers!” added Emily hap­pily.

Coaches, ref­er­ees and score­keep­ers are al­ways needed in the club. Ref­er­ees and score­keep­ers, good jobs for teenagers, are paid po­si­tions. Any­one who would like in­for­ma­tion about vol­un­teer­ing, coach­ing, or play­ing in the Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey can con­tact Emily John­ston (819 876-2117) or pres­i­dent Dave Dubois (819 876-7606) for in­for­ma­tion.
