Support for TASA Families

Good evening,

As you all know, the Hammonds Plains / Tantallon area wildfire is causing a tremendous amount of devastation and loss with so many families. Most of us personally know someone affected by this horrific fire.


A number of these affected families are connected to the TASA Minor Hockey Association, and I think it would be very thoughtful if Chebucto Minor Hockey families could lend a helping hand!  


I have organized a drop off date and location for any families in our Association able to donate items such as: New / Used Hockey Gear in Kid & Adult Sizes; New / Used Clothing Items; Other Sports Equipment; Footwear; Toys / Games; Pet Supplies; Personal Items; Gift Cards; etc.


Donation Drop Off:

Monday, June 5th

6 – 8 pm

Chebucto Heights Elementary School

230 Cowie Hill Road, Halifax


It is in times of need that we dig deep and come together as a community to support one another. Please feel free to share this with your friends and family!


Thank you for your consideration and support. Our thoughts are with all the affected families & all the frontline workers fighting endlessly to get this under control.

AGM Reminder and Update! No Votes Tomorrow!

Good evening,

This is a reminder of the CMHA Annual General Meeting taking place tomorrow night at the Lion's Rink, at 6pm sharp.

I also wanted to update you on nominations for the Executive positions.  Jay McKenzie has decided to withdraw his nomination from both the VP of Competitive and VP of U9.  Jay has decided to return to his current position on the Executive, as VP of U7.  Congratulations to Jay on his return to this position.  Jay has laid the groundwork this past season in U7 and wanted to continue this upcoming season!

I would also like to congratulate Stephen Pelham on his return to VP of Competitive for our Assocation; and I would like to welcome Charlotte Peladeau as the acclaimed VP of U9!

Therefore based on the above, there is no requirement for a vote at tomorrow nights meeting.

I hope to see you all tomorrow night!
