By Julie Leblanc, Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services –
What could be more Canadian than marrying hockey with the military? Hockey, like other team sports, is known to be a vital contributor to fitness, teamwork, loyalty and esprit de corps – which essentially is the embodiment of the Canadian Armed Forces and the commitment of our troops!
Taking place at Algonquin College on 3 and 4 November, 2018, this event brings together community partners like Support Our Troops and NHL alumni to provide music and fun-filled activities ahead of the game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Ottawa Senators, on Sunday evening at 1900hrs.
So what does Support Our Troops have to do with hockey? Support Our Troops relies on proceeds from individual and corporate donations and sponsorships, and fundraising events, like Rogers Hometown Hockey. The Support Our Troops team will be on site throughout the weekend, offering activities the whole family can enjoy, as a way of giving back to our community. Come visit Support Our Troops and other community partners!
The Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour makes its way to 25 different communities in Canada every year. Last year, Rogers Hometown Hockey visited Kingston and were hosted on the grounds of the Royal Military College, over the Remembrance Day weekend. Another stop at CFB Esquimalt is scheduled in February 2019.
Join in on the fun!
