To the Editor,
The Port Alberni Association for Community Living would like to acknowledge all those who took part in the Battle of the Badges—Guns and Hoses hockey game Nov. 8.
Thank you to the police and fire departments for an entertaining game of hockey, Evan Hammond for providing the play-by-play, Ron Paulson for refereeing, the Alberni Valley Bulldogs players and coaches for their assistance throughout the evening, Steve Bilodeau, Shaylene Hebert, Jamie Amos, Lefty Williams and to all those who came out to support the event.
We would also like to thank our event sponsors, Duncan Sabine Collyer, MacDermott’s Insurance, Smitty’s and all vendors who placed ads in our souvenir program.
All proceeds from the game went to the Port Alberni ACL Foundation, which was established to help fund supports and activities for adults with developmental disabilities and children with special needs.
The Port Alberni Association for Community Living is a non-profit society that has been providing services in the Alberni Valley for more than 50 years. We are thankful to live in such an inclusive community where everyone truly belongs.
