BMO Charity Skate set for November 20th

The employees at the Bank of Montreal have settled on the date, with November 20th the day to don your blades and lend a hand to the Prince Rupert Food Bank from 4 to 5:15 PM.

As we outlined on the blog last week, the Bank had approached Prince Rupert City Council this month, seeking an hour of free ice time at the Civic Centre in order to help stock the shelves of the Food Bank, a request that Council granted at their October 24th Council Session.

With that approval in hand, the Banks was quick to pick a date, with posters now up at the local branch in the Ocean Centre listing the third Sunday of November as the day for the event in aid of the Food Bank.

Those who wish to participate can get in a public skate at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre simply by bringing a non-perishable food product (or two) for collection, those that don't have skates can make use of the Free Skate Rental that will be available for the event.

The Public skate is an initiative that is part of the Bank of Montreal's Employee program Days of Caring that looks to make a difference in the communities that the Bank serves.

You can keep up to date on many of the Community Events on the North coast from our updated listings section, part of our right hand column area on the blog.
