Before the game The Salvation Army Band will start the game with the national anthem. Then during the first period intermission Mayor Crouse will be declaring December as Christmas Kettle Month.

Thank You - Canada Remembers

A Canadian Veteran Remembers Juno Beach

Once again we will gather at cenetaphs or in churches across this great country to take time and remember the courage and valour of the many men and women who once defended or continue to defend our rights and freedoms.

This weekend, be sure to at least thank a veteran, or write to a soldier online that is currently deployed, or attend a Remembrance Day service and where a Poppy.

Your support will not go unnoticed.

Personally, this weekend I intend to thank my Grandad - why not do the same and thank someone you know?

By the way, dont forget to thank God for the blessings that we now enjoy in this country and be sure to continue to pray for peace.

    This coming Saturday the Alpha Course will take place at the Church. If you are interested in participating be sure to contact Bill or Peggy Isley as soon as possible.
