The Fort St. John Huskies are looking ahead to the coming season.
After a disappointing turnout on Monday, the Huskies have rescheduled their annual general meeting for Tuesday, June 15, at the Northern Lights College.
The Huskies are hoping to inject some new blood into their executive team, particularly after long-time members Ross Porter and Karen Sparling both announced plans to leave Fort St. John.
Past-president Carolyn Krauss says the pair were key members of the executive team that will need to be replaced.
She’s also hoping volunteers will step up to manage areas including the booster booth, officials, security, publicity, website management, food for road-trips, gaming funding, and the 50/50.
"I suppose you could always get to the point where you could hire people to do these jobs" Krauss says, "but you don’t pay people for passion." Krauss says she’s hoping to attract volunteers who care about Jr. ‘B’ hockey in Fort St. John. She points out, those who step up don’t have to have an in-depth knowledge of hockey, as there are plenty of organizational roles to be filled.
Tuesday’s AGM (at 7 p.m.) is open to the public and Krauss encourages as many people as possible to attend.
