Thursday, September 17 was 'Big Brothers Big Sisters Night' at the Cornwall Colts hockey game. Our Littles were given free drinks and munchies and some even enjoyed the game from a heated box seat. Big Sister Edith Sturgeon and her Little Sister Nickole were invited down to ice level to drop the puck that opened the Colts' game. Thank you to the Cornwall Colts for giving our Matches a night to remember!
