The Saugeen Shores Winterhawks have announced a special tribute to our veterans planned for Remembrance Day.

The Winterhawks will host the Shallow Lake Crushers on Friday November 11th at 8:30 p.m. at The Plex in Port Elgin, and will be wearing special military “camo” 3rd jerseys during the game.

The jerseys will only be worn once and will be auctioned off during intermissions and following the game, thanks to auctioneering services provided by Bill Walker, M.P.P. for Bruce - Grey - Owen Sound.

All proceeds of the jersey auction will be donated to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 340, Port Elgin.

“This is a great opportunity for the Winterhawks to give back to those who have and continue to bravely defend our freedom,” said Winterhawks President Gord Lamont. “It‟s our way of saying thank you and to help out those veterans living in our community.”

The evening is being made possible by sponsors Scott Rowland of Rowland‟s Your Independent Grocer and the Royal Canadian Legion.

“Without our sponsors, we would not be in a position to host this great cause,” said Lamont.
