Saturday, November 18th, 2017 marked the fifth annual Santa's Street Hockey Challenge in Le Village of Cornwall. Portions of Montreal Road were blocked off to allow approximately 100 children the chance to play in the ball hockey tournament.
The tournament was free was participants, encouraging children to get out and have fun representing the school or agency they belonged to. The event was sponsored by a number of agencies, including the CPA, in order to cover costs associated to the event. Every player took home a tournament medal, while the Boys & Girls Club was declared the overall tournament winner.
This year the beneficiaries of the tournament were the Boys & Girls Club of Cornwall/SD&G, Eamer's Corners Public School, and Bishop MacDonell School, each receiving $1000.
A huge thank you to all participants, sponsors, along with Robin McIntosh, Dave MacLean, Matt Dupuis, Darrell Blakely, and Kurt Fraser for representing Cornwall Police proudly at this event.
