Bor­der Hockey Play­ers fin­ish sea­son with awards

Stanstead Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey held its an­nual awards night on Wed­nes­day, April 29th, at the Pat Burns Arena. All play­ers were in­vited and they, along with their teams, were rec­og­nized for their achieve­ments. The coaches from each team had the op­por­tu­nity to also award three play­ers with the Esso awards for most ‘im­proved’, ‘sports­man­like’ and ‘ded­i­cated’.

It was also a chance for pres­i­dent David Dubois to award prizes to the top win­ners of the skate-a-thon which was held in March. Forty-nine play­ers par­tic­i­pated, rais­ing $6100. The top fif­teen chil­dren were given prizes which in­cluded a bike, jay peak wa­ter slide passes, two Johnny Gau­dreau hockey cards, hockey sticks and more. In or­der, the top win­ners were Alek Veilleux, Zachary Pat­ter­son, Heidi Mathers, Matthew Wash­burn Roy, Brady Blake, Shawn Wash­burn Roy and Kaysha Marie Flan­ders. The grand prize win­ner was Alek Veilleux who raised $635. The skate-a-thon ended up be­ing Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey’s most suc­cess­ful fundraiser. The di­rec­tors of Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey would like to thank all the kids who par­tic­i­pated, they did an amaz­ing job, and all the peo­ple who sup­ported the kids. “The gen­eros­ity from the com­mu­nity was amaz­ing. We had a do­na­tion all the way from Florida. Thank you to ev­ery­one!” said Emily John­ston.

Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey will have their an­nual meet­ing on Tues­day May 19th start­ing at 7pm. Vot­ing is open to all par­ents whose child is reg­is­tered with Bor­der Mi­nor Hockey. There are po­si­tions avail­able on the board. For more in­for­ma­tion please con­tact Emily John­ston at 819-876-2117 or at theveilleux@ya­hoo. ca.
