Last Friday evening, March 13th, the members of The Island Shrine Club were privileged to participate in a hockey game at the Eastlink Arena in Charlottetown between the Charlottetown Islanders and The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. The Shriners had the opportunity to sell tickets on the annual Philae FEZEROO for 2015 as well as the hockey pucks for the "PUCK TOSS" which takes place between the 2nd and 3rd period. The evening was arranged by Nobel Florian Bryan who went all out to make this evening a joyous one for both Shriners and the very large crowd gathered for the game. The highlight for many of us in the club was the honour of being able to be the guest singers of "O Canada" prior to the game. Nobel President of the club, David Bell, assisted Jillian Dunphy, a very regular attender in her wheelchair to drop the puck prior to the game. Nobel Nelson Hurry drove the Chrysler truck around the ice between periods which gave a great boost to ticket sales. It was a wonderful evening of club camaraderie seeing a good turnout of Nobels to participate in the festivities. Nobel Florian treated us all to pizza in a private room following the game and we all went home happy following the game. Sad to say the Islanders came out the losers of the game.
