Cornwall Ontario — In light of the tragedy that occurred yesterday at Parliament Hill, the River Kings would like to extend an invitation for free admission to all military personnel, veterans and first responders (police, fire, paramedics) to Saturday’s game.
“The tragedy that occurred at Parliament Hill was shameful, full of hate, and meant to create fear in our country,” said River Kings owner Brock Frost. “The men and women who protect us did their job and I for one am forever grateful.”
A moment of silence will also be held prior to puck drop.
“This small token of gratitude is my way of saying thank you to those who serve us,” said Frost. “Thank you for all you do and for making us safe.”
Cornwall hosts Jonquiere on Saturday, Oct. 25. Game time is 7:30 p.m.
