Small gesture from big hearts

It's a small gesture... more symbolic than life changing. But I wanted to share with Your Local Journal readers that the HRS (Hudson/Rigaud/St. Lazare) Prédateurs Midget B hockey team had a few dollars left over in their team's bank account after all was said and done at the end of their past season. So, we collectively decided, rather than writing out 17 separate checks to each family for roughly $11 or so, we voted to donate our approximately $185 balance to the Canadian Red Cross to help out our fellow citizens. With our governments' generosity, that will turn into a $370 donation towards a worthy cause.
If every other minor league team (local or anywhere around Canada) with a positive balance sheet would do the same, collectively we would all make a big difference.
Thank you to all the ‘Prédateurs’ parents for supporting this idea.
