The Plattsville Lakers safely and successfully completed their Teddy Bear Collection this past weekend.
The Lakers and Plattsville & District Minor Hockey Association spent their time in the rainy weather collecting over 100 teddy bears, food for over 10 families, and more than $150 cash, which was donated to three different local and surrounding charities.
Mayor Mark Peterson said, “On behalf of Blandford-Blenheim and its residents, I would like to thank the Plattsville Lakers hockey team for the continued support in our township. We truly are lucky to have such great young ambassador representing our community. The food, money donated, and teddy beard collected will go a long way in helping through this difficult time.”
“It was a great day over all! Both associations wanted to help out those in need, and give some families a wonderful holiday. Thank you to our amazing community. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.” – From the Plattsville Lakers players and staff.
