Good Deed
Recently, some members of our Bantam team learned just how good it feels to give back!

This past weekend, they were in the Shane O'Brien tournament in Cobourg/Port Hope.

While at the rink between their games, the team's coach was approached by a woman involved with Port Hope Special Needs Hockey.  Their team was about to go on the ice, but only had 1 available helper.  She asked if there would be any players of our Bantam team that would be willing to help out.

5 players stepped up to help:

Keith Ridyard
Hayden Bickmore
Nate Thomson
Nick Thomson
Mike Smith

Their presence made a difference to that team and they learned just how good it feels to help others!

Well done boys! ("read more" to see the picture)
