Dryden Ice Dogs will raise awareness and help support the Soldier-On Fund



DRYDEN – In honour of Remembrance Day, the Superior International Junior Hockey League Dryden Ice Dogs will raise awareness and help support the Soldier-On Fund.
This is a program that rehabilitates injured soldiers through sports. On Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7PM the Dryden Ice Dogs will be hosting their very first “Military” game against the Fort Frances Lakers at the Dryden Memorial Arena.

Soldier-On is widely recognized for improving the quality of life of ill and injured Canadian Forces military personnel and their families; inspiring them to actively participate in physical, recreational or sporting activities.

Opening ceremonies will feature an Honour Guard to include the Dryden Legion and Oxdrift Legion, Dryden Cadets selling poppies, and a demonstration of a static display by the Thunder Bay and Kenora Militia in the arena parking lot.

A representative group of the 116 Independent Field Battery, Royal Canadian Artillery, Kenora Army Reserve will be in attendance and have information available to share with the public.

Since this is a special event to help support our military, Canadian Tire has sponsored this special onetime only game day by providing camouflage jerseys.

These game worn jerseys will be available for pre-purchase on the military game day Nov. 3.

Proceeds from this sale will go directly to the Soldier-On Fund and there will be a donation jar set-up for those that want to contribute additional support to this important cause.
