Thank you again to Hockley Valley Brewery Company for its tremendous support of the 5th Annual Alton Millpond Hockey Classic this past Saturday. It was a great day. The weather cooperated and everyone had a wonderful time skating in the great outdoors, cheering on the little 6 year olds in a shoot out (using burlap nets), watching the men, the women, boys and girls play pond hockey throughout the day.
The kids, parents and dignitaries stood outside together and sang The National anthem followed by another other anthem – the Good Old Hockey Game as the sun was shining through the blowing snow. The evening’s Hot Stove Lounge Pub Night was excellent and in the end, people loved the Hockley Beer! We heard positive feedback throughout the day and evening events about the ‘Classic’ lager. Hockey and Hockley – you don’t get any more Canadian than that.
It was a great day all around and we’re so pleased that you were part of this successful community event. Thank you. We will follow up with a formal recognition and a total amount raised in the near future but I did just want to say thank you again and that we are so pleased to have had you on board this year.
