The Bible Hill Kinsmen marked the 15th year of the Power Play Program last night before the Truro Bearcats game against the Amherst Ramblers. Cheques were presented to seven groups and organizations, totaling $5,000 for the 2016-17 Maritime Hockey League season.

The Kinsmen donate $100 at every home game, or $200 if the Bearcats score a powerplay goal that night. A charity is chosen for each home game and they rotate throughout the season.

The charities this season were the CEC Scholarship Fund, the Children’s Wish Foundation, the Colchester Food Bank, the Colchester-East Hants Hospice Society, the Truro Boys and Girls Club, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

In the 15 seasons of this partnership with the Truro Bearcats, the Bible Hill Kinsmen have now donated $70,800! It’s just one more way the Kinsmen continue to live up to the motto “Serving the Community’s Greatest Need”.
