We are happy to announce that we are partnering with Rosenau Transport! This big-hearted family owned business has offered to help distribute our sports equipment all over Alberta free of charge. Rosenau has also become partners with Comrie's on the storage end of the business as well. We will be building bulk orders right next to their shipping department which will facilitate thousands of kids getting into equipment.
We would like to welcome Hayley Wickenheiser as an ambassador for Comrie's Sports Equipment Bank. Hayley is having as big an impact after her career as she did during it. Hayley's hockey tournament is coming up on November 16th - 19th and November 23rd-26th and she bound to put on a world class event as usual. We will have a booth at this event so please contact us if you would like to volunteer and be a part of the action!
A big thanks to Mango Maids, Aquality Plumbing & Heating, and Braun Electric for helping us with setting up the shop to properly clean our equipment. Mango Maids has donated a washer and drier so we can clean up our act, Aquality Plumbing came in to get things flowing smoothly, and Braun Electric is bringing power to the people. Contact these rock solid community minded businesses to take on your next project with peace of mind.
We would like to give a special shout out to our longtime friends at ECTAS for finding room for us as we went through this tremendous growth spurt over the last three years. We look forward to having caring partners like this in our community for many years to come. Visit their website at http://eastcalgary.ca/
It was a pleasure to be a part of the Hockey Canada Alumni Golf Tournament. We are proud to be partners with this great foundation
and reveled in the challenge of golfing through snow drifts. The sun was out and so were the smiles.
We are extremely proud of our partnership with the Calgary Flames Foundation for Life. Some of their impact is shown very clearly through another one of our favorite programs, Hero's Hockey. This month we were very grateful to attend an early season session where we got to see the impact first hand. I'm sure that Kevin Hodgson from Hero's and Jacob Stukel from your Calgary Hitmen would agree.
