TAIT: Hit the Books

Cam Tait kicks off Read-in-Week with his childhood memories of being read to

by Cam Tait / EdmontonOilers.com

It was always so special when my Uncle Bill came to visit. He'd pull up into our driveway, usually just after supper time, after he navigated that pale blue Buick La Sabre south during the five-hour drive to Edmonton from Grande Prairie. My mother, in anticipation of his arrival, always kept a plate of supper in the oven for Uncle Bill. We'd gather around the kitchen table and visit with him while he ate his evening meal.

Visiting would continue until 8:00 PM. Then, it was off to brush my teeth and climb into my single bed in the bedroom I shared with my younger brother Brad.

FEATURE: Operation Edmonton Helps Houston

Kelly Talbot, wife of Oilers netminder Cam, initiated Operation Edmonton Helps Houston in an effort to aid those affected by Hurricane Harvey

by Paul Gazzola / EdmontonOilers.com

Kelly Talbot couldn't idle as she watched and read about the devastation unfolding in Houston, Texas due to Hurricane Harvey. 

Kelly's family hails from Hurst - near the Dallas-Fort Worth region - and the mother of two felt the need to help the families affected by the natural disaster.

"My family is down there," Kelly said, standing next to husband Cam in the Oilers Hall of Fame Room on Friday. "Luckily, they're not in the Houston area. It's such a heartfelt thing seeing my state like that.

"I would feel like that for any state but my sister does have her in-laws in there and it's something that's super near and dear to my heart."
