The 70 young breakfast program enrollees at St. Mary’s Elementary in Longueuil were treated to a wonderful surprise this morning, when the spouses of Brian Flynn, Jeff Petry, Dustin Tokarski and Carey Price #31 joined our team of volunteers to serve up the first meal of the day!
The sense of excitement was palpable as Julie, Linea, Alyssa and Angela took the time to talk to the kids, take pictures and sign autographs. The students took advantage of the opportunity to ask questions about their hockey heroes. Young Ryan even gave Angela his own hockey card, which she promised to pass along to Carey.
Several journalists were on hand to cover the event, and some even asked the kids for their predictions for tonight’s game – no surprises there: everyone is pulling for Carey Price to lead the Habs to another victory! As they headed to class, the students talked about little else. In fact, we’re willing to bet it’ll continue to be a very popular topic of conversation at recess and lunch. Just goes to show that Club membership has its privileges!
This memorable moment was made possible thanks to the wonderful partnership we have forged with Angela and Carey Price. We are fortunate to have our devoted FNMI ambassadors giving back to the Club at every opportunity – even in the middle of playoff season!
