The 14th anniversary of the George Trainor
Holiday Classic hockey tournament, scheduled to take place in Charlottetown
from December 27 to 29, is in need of volunteers.
Anyone interested in giving back to Minor Hockey A level
players has an opportunity to get involved in the organizing committee for the
tournament. Volunteers are needed in various roles, such as hospitality and
rink manager. Those who volunteer in 2018 will be able to shadow the current
organizing committee with the possibility of taking a lead role in 2019.

For anyone interested in learning more about the
tournament and volunteer roles available, an information session will be held
on Thursday, November 1 at 7 p.m. in the Parkdale Room at City Hall (199 Queen
Street). All are welcome. Light refreshments will be available.
