Montreal Canadiens Alumni did not disappoint at charity hockey game on February 18

We had an amazing time with our members at the Montreal Canadiens Alumni Charity Hockey Game at Frank Crane Arena on Sunday, February 18 in support of Nanaimo Loaves and Fishes Food Bank.

Thank you to all those who didn't let the snow stop them and joined us in the VICA section, including Jeremy from Kepsco Construction Management, Tyler from Omicron Construction, and Kris from Kobalt Systems! What a perfect day for a nostalgic game. Tara Coulter, Employment Development Officer from UVIC Engineering and Computer Science Co-op & Career and her husband Tim from Durwest Construction Management shared a few photos with us. Others can be seen on our Facebook page here. 

The final score was 8 for the Canadiens Alumni and 4 for Loaves & Fishes.
