A local hockey team took time to honor our nation’s heroes Saturday.
This afternoon’s game hosted by the Eau Claire North Huskies at Hobb’s Ice Arena, dedicated their game to honoring military members.
All military personnel were able to get into the game for free. The boy’s head coach says this event is a great way to get the kids thinking about their community.
“We came here four years ago, we wanted to change the culture a little bit, get these guys to start thinking about the community and the people around them,” says Huskies head coach Ryan Parker. “For quite a few of our guys, past and present, military is a strong option for them, we wanted to show these guys to show respect to the men and women who have served and who are currently serving in the military right now.”
A celebration for families and military members was held at Dooley’s on Water Street after the game.
