Children who had the opportunity to play hockey this season as part of the North End Hockey Program will be rewarded this afternoon.
Inner-city youth were given hockey equipment from generous community donors to lace up for the first time and be part of a team.
Organizers will hand out trophies and serve up pizza, cake and other goodies as part of a celebration at Norquay Community Centre between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
A short program will touch on the success of the program and what the future holds.
