City of Hamilton Survey
As a follow up to the November 2016 meetings the hockey members asked the Recreation Department to facilitate a survey of their members. The intent was to collect information which could be used in the future planning of hockey in our city.
The City of Hamilton would like to ask each Affiliated Association to copy the survey link onto their respective website and send a blast email to their membership. Please ask your members to complete our brief survey on a desktop computer or any mobile device.

Girls Helping Girls Update!
To all our Ancaster Girls Hockey members who participated in this year's Girls Helping Girls campaign, THANK YOU! We surpassed our goal of $1000 and achieved 100% participation across the Association! Final donation tally was $2592 and we collected over 90 bottles of shampoo and conditioner, over 50 bottles of body wash, over 230 tubes of toothpaste and over 80 toothbrushes, 140 bars of soap and the list goes on and on...this was the true definition of a TEAM EFFORT!
Special thanks to Melanie Barlow and her team at Ancaster Community Services for their help with this year's campaign and for all they do all year long to help families in our community.
Thank you to everyone who helped alleviate some of the burden for girls and their families in our very own community. What a great way to teach our young girls that girls should always help other girls.
Thank you and all the best to your families this holiday season.
