The Canmore Eagles Junior A hockey club is very active in the Bow Valley Community. Between home games last weekend, the entire team came out to help unload and prepare presents from the Canadian Tire Christmas Tree Truck and also spent Thursday evening roaming the streets to collect food items for the Bow Valley Food Bank. Please see letter below to Head Coach Andrew Milne.
Subject: Bow Valley Christmas Spirit food drive
Andrew, as Board member and Treasurer of the Bow Valley Christmas Spirit Society I feel compelled to send this email to identify the value of the help we received last evening from the players who worked side by side with us to successfully complete our annual food drive.
Your players worked non-stop until ten o'clock helping in any way they could to make everybody's task easier. I was very impressed with how they all excepted the role of “muscle” for the night and instantly responded when lifting was required. I was equally impressed with the positive attitudes and the bad singing that kept everyone's spirits lifted. When there was no lifting or carrying required they all just jumped in to help with the minor and menial tasks without even being asked. They definitely created and maintained the Christmas atmosphere throughout the evening and didn't even think about leaving until the job was totally finished. They played a major part and performed beyond expectations. We would still be there if your team had not showed up and performed as they did. Thank you just doesn't express our appreciation enough. I'm sure you gained some new Eagles fans and a greater image in our community.
Good luck with the rest of your season.
