St. Joseph’s Food Bank scores big at
2019 Garrison Officer’s Hockey Tournament
Posted on Thursday April 4, 2019
GARRISON PETAWAWA - Through the generosity of the officers of Garrison Petawawa, and in cooperation with St. George’s Chapel, a kind donation was made March 22 to Pembroke’s St. Joseph’s Food Bank at the completion of the 18th Annual Garrison Officer’s Hockey Tournament.
The Garrison Officer’s Hockey Tournament has been an annual event going back to 2001 that celebrates cohesion, friendly competition and camaraderie. Since 2002, the tournament began accepting monetary and non-perishable food donations help make an impact and give back to surrounding communities.
This year, the tournament, typically a basic round-robin format, was given a facelift to include a player draft, where players are drafted and traded to different teams.
The Officers of Garrison Petawawa are proud to present a cheque, through coordination with St. George’s Chapel, of $3,755.65 to support St. Joseph’s Food Bank in Pembroke.
“This has sincerely been a team effort and I applaud my committee on the hard work and dedication they’ve put in to make this such a success,” said tournament organizer Captain Stephen Keeble.
“We decided to change the tournament up a bit this year to encourage more cohesion and friendship amongst our membership and I couldn’t be happier with the level of participation and camaraderie we’ve seen.”
