Each of these young adults have proven to their coaches, to their teams and to each other that with hard work a bit of grit they can accomplish great things. These players make up 8 of the 15 scholarships that JDFMHA was proud to be able to present this year. All of these individuals will be going on to post secondary educations, and as they move on we would like to wish them the best in all their future endeavors.

In the early hours of August 18th a house fire broke out on Bear Mountain. Darren Scott and Catherine Pineda and their family lost their home, there was not much left of their home as of 6am Sunday morning, and most of the valuables were lost in the fire. Thankfully, everyone made it out of the house okay. These two individuals are JDF officials, they have made time in their lives to come and ref our children's games, to mentor the younger generation and to always partake in a sport they love so much.
Within a few hours Galen Brewer our Head Referee set up a GoFundMe page to help the family back on their feet. It has been posted to our social media, and shared through many of the other MHAs and our community. We cannot replace the items lost or the memories made, but our hope is that as a hockey family we can come together and make sure this family who has done so much for us is now taken care of in their time of need. We have also started contacting local businesses for support, additionally Candice Heinekey our Ref Allocator has set up an account at the bottle depot for the family. For more information please contact Candice at email@example.com
We would like to thank all of the people who have donated already, it is your generosity that shows what this hockey family is really all about.
