Hockey game raises funds for charity

Summerland Jets Peewee Rep hockey team participated in a charity fundraiser game

The Summerland Figure Skating Club has given many skaters the opportunity to advance in competitive and non-competitive areas of skating.

Sabrina Fortunato has achieved her Level 1 coaching certificate and her gold skating certification.

Fortunato has earned multiple medals at various competitions throughout the season.

Lauren Bitte has earned several gold medals, and passed multiple skating tests throughout the 2016 season.

Bitte is considering skating competitive for the upcoming 2017 season.

Both girls were asked to showcase their talents at the Peewee Rep. Charity game on the weekend.
