2017 Annual Bill Duncan Hockey Tournament
The final bill just arrived and we are proud to announce that we have surpassed our previous years donation for Clarkys Kids. Our grand total for 2017 is……..
On a more serious note………as many of you were aware (and for those of you that weren’t), David Clarkson made an appearance at the tournament. He was very appreciative of the work that the organizers from the hockey and golf tournament have done for his charity over the past number of years. He stressed the importance that Clarky’s Kids would not be as successful as it was without the support from the department.
That being said, Matt, Craig, Jeff and myself feel similar but a little different. We feel these tournaments would not be what they are today without the support from all divisions of the KFD. From the management to the players to the volunteers to the retirees……these events would not be able to be pulled off without everyones help. .
From all of us……THANK YOU!
And until next year…..Keep your stick on the ice!
