The SMSA hockey team and friends invite you to attend their BIG game, versus cross-town rival, the Fond du Lac Cardinals, on Friday, December 21, at 7 p.m. at the Blue Line Family Ice Center (550 Fond du Lac Ave).
They are excited and honored to start a new tradition that gives them the chance to recognize and pay tribute to the brave and caring men and women in our community that have served in the military.
The team has announced a “Salute the Troops” fundraiser in which all “chuck-a-puck” proceeds (from both the December 15 and December 21 games) will be donated to Salute the Troops. In addition, t-shirts will be available for purchase for $10 each, with proceeds supporting Salute the Troops.
If interested, there will be an opportunity at the game to visit a Salute the Troops information table to learn more and donate to this great cause!
Special military ribbons will be handed out to all those who have served our country, and a special recognition will take place before the game.
Between the 1st and 2nd period, The Fond du Lac Blades – Team USA – will perform a special tribute.
This night is also the Coach Tim and Rose Ahern retirement recognition night. Their recognition will take place before the game, followed by a special military recognition and the singing of our National Anthem.
