YOUTH GRANT PURCHASES NEW JERSEYS

Thanks to a grant awarded by the Cadillac & Kellogg for Youth Committee; an advisory committee to the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, a local youth hockey team has purchased new uniforms for its players.

The Cadillac Vikings Bantam Hockey Team is part of the Cadillac Area Hockey Association, an all-volunteer group that provides a unique environment for youth athletes to have fun, build character and exercise their bodies. The condition of the team’s game day jerseys had deteriorated over the past eight years and were in dire need of replacement. The generosity of the Cadillac Area Community Foundation has allowed the Cadillac Area Hockey Association to purchase new jerseys that will be proudly worn by this season’s team, and by hundreds of youth hockey players to come.

Bantam hockey player Ian Lilly shared the team’s enthusiasm, “We are excited and grateful to receive such support from the community! Our old jerseys were faded, stained, peeling and falling apart. Having new jerseys has been great for team pride and we all want to say thanks to the Cadillac & Kellogg for Youth Advisory Committee and Cadillac Area Community Foundation.”
