Support needed for new hockey team

I am extremely proud to be a part of a new hockey tradition in Summerland. The excitement that comes with assisting Jonathan and Tanya Bowman and their family, of reaching their goal of bringing winning hockey to the Summerland area, can only be matched by the overwhelming response the citizens and businesses of the area have shown us.

Dear Editor:

I am extremely proud to be a part of a new hockey tradition in Summerland.  The excitement that comes with assisting Jonathan and Tanya Bowman and their family, of reaching their goal of bringing winning hockey to the Summerland area, can only be matched by the overwhelming response the citizens and businesses of the area have shown us.

From the response of the many billet families, to the number of volunteers who have signed up to help, you’ve opened my eyes to the many wonderful people that make up this fantastic community.  I thank you all for welcoming us with open arms.

I guarantee you will be proud of the young men that we have assembled as the first members of your Summerland Steam.

As you welcome our out of town players into your homes and community and cheer on your very own, home-grown, Summerland hero’s, you can be assured their character and effort will make the Steam the talk of the town and Summerland the talk of the league.

Without you, the fans, we can’t possibly succeed. As partners in this new endeavor, the Steam and our fans can create an atmosphere in our rink that will be the envy of every “barn” in the KIJHL.

The excitement the players feel that comes with a noisy, full house each game motivates them like nothing else.  So let’s set our heights high. Let’s start two new traditions in Summerland this season.  We’re not only starting a new team, let’s make our rink the loudest rink in the league.

I promise you our players will give you nothing less than 100 per cent effort, 100 per cent passion and 100 per cent excitement every time we lace them up.  As a result, and consistent with our mission statement of emphasizing player development and excellence in hockey through respect, commitment and hard work, I look forward to the day when we have earned your trust and loyalty for our efforts both on the ice and for our work within your community.
