Wawa Emergency Services Hockey Game Returns

Members of Wawa's emergency services will be hitting the ice this weekend in a hockey game supporting an important local cause.

The annual event will see members of the local Ontario Provincial Police detachment, the Wawa Volunteer Fire Department, and Algoma District Paramedic Services face off, and Wawa's Assistant Director of Community Services and Tourism, Brian Lachine, notes this year will see a major change.

Lachine notes there will also be a "chuck-a-puck" style competition with a chance to win $1500, and reminds admission's simply "silver collection" - with all proceeds supporting Long-Term Care at the Lady Dunn Health Centre.

The Emergency Services Charity hockey game begins at 7:30 Saturday night, at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre.
