Cooper’s Foods helped out the Minor Posse by providing the space and goods to do a barbecue fundraiser during the Friday evening Light up celebration. This group of youngsters are all members of Princeton’s Minor Posse and are quite excited about the prospect of new jerseys and being a part of “Posse Mania.”

Excited for change minor hockey works their skates off

Princeton Minor Hockey joins up with the big boys.

This past summer Princeton Minor Hockey approached the Princeton Posse executive with a idea to make the hockey brand in Princeton, all inclusive. Meaning, that Princeton Minor Hockey teams would become known as the Princeton Minor Posse. The idea was accepted unanimously  by the Posse executive, Princeton Minor Hockey parents and players alike.  The excitement of becoming the “Minor Posse” has stemmed fundraisers to acquire new jerseys for the four local teams.

During the light up festivities on Friday, November 25, Princeton Minor Posse sold hot dogs and hot chocolate by donation. Many thanks to Cooper’s Foods for the donation of the hot dogs, buns, condiments and hot chocolate as well as the use of the barbecue.

On Friday, Dan Lankinen, President of the Minor Posse said of their fundraising efforts, “things are going well, we are meeting our expectations.”

Minor Posse are currently selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a $2000 Alaskan Airlines Gift Certificate to be drawn  in February 2012. Raffle Tickets are one for $5 or five for $20 and  are available from hockey parents or at The Spotlight Office – 282 Bridge Street.

Operation Red Nose is being run by a group of Minor Posse parents.  They are available for booking (large parties only) throughout the holiday season. Copper Mountain Mine and Princeton Weyerhaeuser have acquired this service to ensure the safe return home for their employees.

To book Operation Red Nose for your holiday party please call Dierra at 250-295-3535 or 250-295-0084.

Any individual or business that may be interested in sponsoring a player’s new jersey can also contact Dierra.  FortisBC and Subway have already jumped on board with the name change for which everyone involved in minor hockey is very grateful.
