Meeting was a privilege

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend a North Island Eagles end of season hockey meeting.

Dear editor:

Yesterday I had the privilege to attend a North Island Eagles end of season hockey meeting.

I was there to present Esso Hockey Medals to worthy recipients of each of their teams.

I was, as always, impressed with the level of dedication of the volunteers that allow the association to function.

As each team came and went from the stage at Sunset Elementary, I began to realize what a great group of boys and girls that were in each team.

They were well behaved, polite and represented our multicultural diversity in a way that all of Canada and the rest of the world should strive to emulate.

Good on all of you.

C.E. (Gene) Cadwallader, president

Swiftsure Petroleum Distributors Ltd.
