At the Public Council Meeting last night, City Council were pleased to support a request for funding for three-thousand dollars for the Corner Brook Royals.

The money is to support operations for the Corner Brook Royals who are a part of the newly formed West Coast Senior Hockey League. The hockey games will provide a positive social, recreational, and economic impact on our region. The Royals will focus on the development of local players, will be a predominately volunteer run organization, and offer affordable rates for individuals and families to attend games in our region.

Council would like to thank the dedicated volunteers and players who are committed to reviving hockey and would like to invite residents and area hockey enthusiast to the games at the Civic Centre.
