The 3rd annual Frontenac Minor Hockey Association (FMHA) Rinks to Links Golf Tournament will be held Saturday September 12 at Rivendell Golf Club. There are many ways to be involved including sponsoring a hole, contributing a prize for the silent auction or individual prizes for golfers. With your support, FMHA fundraising is keeping hockey affordable to over 400 children in our community. Over the past two years, despite the rising costs of operations, the Initiation Program (IP) Tyke registration fees were reduced slightly, and the league fees have remained the same in all other age categories. Rep team jerseys have been replaced and (3) five week sessions of power skating were available to players at an affordable price. All of this could not be possible without tremendous community support. For more information or to register a team for the tournament visit www.frontenachockey.ca
