The club is excited to be launching our Avalon Celtics Alumni Association and this is your invitation to join us. For many of us, our minor hockey years made for some of our best memories and where we met life-long friends. We have a rich hockey history, and we are calling on all current and former Avalon Celtics, as well as former Avalon and Celtics Minor Hockey Association players, coaches, volunteers and family members to join this new and exciting Alumni Association.
What does it mean to be a member? In essence, you’ll be the social side horsepower for the club. You’ll be in the loop with what’s happening on and off the ice regarding club activities and maybe help out where you can with some of these events including:
- Annual U9 Invitational tournament or other provincial / invitational tournaments
- Invitation to club events like our upcoming first inaugural Avalon Celtics Hall of Fame induction ceremony and dinner coming November 5, 2022
- Avalon Celtics Happy Hour events to catch up with old teammates, friends, and coaches
- An annual golf tournament as well as other social gatherings
In addition, we would love for you to look around your home for some Avalon Celtics (and former Avalon and Celtics) memorabilia that we might be able to display in our new arena, The DF Barnes Arena (formerly Feildian Gardens). Anything from old jerseys, equipment, photos, newspaper clippings, banners, and pins.
There is no cost to be a part of the Avalon Celtics Alumni Association – just please respond to email@example.com with the best email address to connect with you and we are off to the races. And feel free to share with former teammates, friends and coaches. After all, our alumni are our greatest ambassadors. We will be creating a database of all alumni members and will be connecting with you via email and through existing Avalon Celtics social media channels as well and new social media channels that will be specific to the alumni association.
Yours in hockey,
Avalon Minor Hockey Association Board of Directors
