Bulldogs are class acts off ice too

A heartfelt thank you to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, who came to Ty Watson House last month to visit one of their fans.

To the Editor,

A heartfelt thank you to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, who came to Ty Watson House last month to visit one of their fans.

Thank you to coaches Kevin Willison and Adam Hayduk, who accompanied the young men.

On the ice, we have seen these hockey players display tenacious and tough as nails physical play, as they do their best to win for their fans and team.

In the Ty Watson House living room, they were caring, sensitive, attentive and considerate in their interaction with our dear resident, his wife and family members.

The Bulldogs players put a smile on all of our faces that day, and tears in our eyes. We want the public to know they inspire us all.

Janet Morrison,

Ty Watson House,

Port Alberni
