Thursday:   Congratulations Tricity Red Blacks for winning Peewee AA Tier II league! These guys fought from the start of the season where they couldn’t win a game to winning the Vancouver tournament, to now being the champions of tier II. They couldn’t have done this without the great coaching and leadership from Derek Doucette and Mark Colligan. Great job team!

This weekend, we stopped by Conestoga Mall so she could check out the Ford van that accompanied Terry on his Marathon of Hope.” – Rachel (Jessica’s mom)
