Hockey Knight in Pictou 2017

The 8th Annual Hockey Knight in Pictou (2017) –  was a success
all Leafs and Canadian fans who were at the Hall tonight when I say thank you to Fred Dobson and his committee for a great night. Our Worthy State Secretary Jim MacDonald born in Springhill came to our event tonight with his Hockey stick signed in 1957 by Maple Leafs. He was given this hockey stick because in 1957 there was a mining disaster in Springhill and the kids of the parents killed were given a full uniform and a signed hockey sticks (Jim still has his).
