NHL alums sign autographs at Hockeyville Fun Fair

STIRLING-RAWDON, Ontario -- Former NHL players Brad Marsh, Laurie Boschman, Mike Gaul and Jamie Allison signed autographs during the Fun Fair event in the parking lot outside the Stirling & District Recreation Centre on Sunday afternoon.

The festivities included the presentation of a $100,000 check for upgrades and renovations to the Stirling & District Recreation Centre and a $10,000 food bank donation. The Stanley Cup was on display for photographs, while fun for the kids included two bouncy castles, an accuracy game for shooting hockey balls, a slide and free Kraft products for everyone.

The musical stylings of Brian Cosbey and Friends filled the air on an afternoon in which potential rain stayed away.

"It's been a good experience for us," said Cindy Brandy, the chairperson who made the push to bring Hockeyville to the town. "I think this past week, with all the advertisement on the radio and the television stations, things improved dramatically. Hence, the crowd today."

A few thousand people are here today with the alumni game set for 7 p.m. at the recreation centre.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
