With the addition of Grade 8 and 9 kids to the Alberni District Secondary School (ADSS) their popular Breakfast Club program will need more help this year. Last year they spent more than $20,000 feeding 400+high school students every day, whose family situation prevented them from having a proper breakfast before school. Breakfast is very important for young people as without it their attention spans and their ability to retain information are lessened.
Members of the Alberni Valley Bulldogs will be in attendance to offer to bag groceries, or carry out groceries in exchange for donations to the ADSS Breakfast Program. They will be in attendance on the 11th from 10 am to 1 pm, and the 18th from 5-7 pm.
I will be Live on Location today from 10am to 1pm broadcasting live on 93.3 The Peak FM trying to get the word out, hopefully we'll see you up at Save on Foods!
It's always tough to see a player you've come to know move on, but such is life in Junior Hockey, and I guess hockey in general. Drew is a great kid, and I too wish him all the best. I thank my lucky stars every day that I just get to call the game, and I don't have to make decisions like this that the Coaches have to make because they sure aren't easy ones.
