I am pleased to announce that Council approved my request to dedicate Rink 1 at Meadowvale Four Rinks.
Johnny was a local resident as well as being a hockey legend. He was especially a caring man who was always willing to support young people. He always had a kind word for all and would respond tirelessly to request for autographs. Sadly Johnny passed away in December 2017 before I could honour him with this dedication but his family will be there to accept on his behalf as we keep his memory alive in the community. I am also pleased to have the support of the Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association and will be working with them as we plan the event.
Please mark Sunday October 28, 2018 from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm in your calendar for the official unveiling and renaming of Rink 1 at Meadowvale Four Rinks located at 2160 Torquay Mews. I will be giving out commemorative hockey pucks. This special event will also include :
- A Ceremony with Johnny Bower’s family
- Coaches Charity Game featuring Meadowvale Minor Hockey Association coaches and Peel Regional Police
- Meadowvale Hockey on-ice goalie tribute
- Free refreshments: cupcakes, pizza, coffee and hot-chocolate
- Free fun skate
- Food drive for Eden Food For Change (Bring a non-perishable food donation for our local food bank)
