Pembroke Lumber Kings CAF Appreciation Night Feb.15

The Pembroke Lumber Kings (PLK) are having a special game in honour of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), inviting members of the CAF and the Defence Team at Garrison Petawawa and their families to watch them play next week.
The PLK Appreciation Night game will showcase Ottawa versus Pembroke at the Pembroke Memorial Centre (PMC) on Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. All attendees are invited to wear their uniforms or wear red if they are civilian or family members.
“We want to show them that we appreciate everything they do for our country,” said Game Day Operations/Office Manager Maureen Duhamel.
2 Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (2 CMBG) Pipes and Drums will be performing during the first intermission as well as right before the ceremonial puck drop when representatives from the Garrison will officially start the game.
About 500 to 600 tickets will be distributed throughout Garrison Petawawa and those interested should contact their unit Chain of Command or the Petawawa Military Family Resource Centre (PMFRC). The purpose of the free tickets is twofold; to let new residents know about the hockey talent in the area and to allow military families to spend a fun evening out.
“On behalf of the Garrison Defence team and our families I would like to thank the Pembroke Lumber Kings for once again inviting us. It is always nice to know that we are appreciated in our communities and we are incredibly grateful for the support,” said 4th Canadian Division Support Group Commander Colonel Louis Lapointe.
