Military Appreciation Day at the Brampton Beast Game

For Sunday, November 12, 2017

All cadets are invited to join us with their family on Sunday, November 12, 2017 to participate in the military appreciation day sponsored by Kotak Law. Our flag party will be a part of the opening ceremonies and our band will play some music during the first intermission.

Time: 1:00PM at the main box office doors
Dress: C1 (full dress with medals)
Tickets: FREE – available from Captain Clark at the door

In previous years Mr. Kotak has kindly invited the cadets to his private corporate box to watch the game with food and drinks and there’s a good chance this will likely happen again (no promises though!).

Hockey Hall of Fame goaltender, Johnny Bower, will also be in attendance at the game and many veterans will be honoured. It’s truly a wonderful experience and we would love to see many of you out there!
