Hello Hockey Parents, Guardians, Players and Friends I would like to invite you to attend our Annual General Meeting being held on March 27 at 7 PM upstairs at the Coldwater Arena.
At this meeting we review the financial position of our association, review proposed changes to our constitution review any changes to minor hockey as proposed by the OMHA and elect new members to our executive.
