"Yesterday I worked for Country Club Centre at the family skate with the Clippers. I expected to do crafts with just kids but ended up having a table full of Clippers in uniform totally getting into making ghost and bat necklaces. They were all really sweet young men and it was a lot of fun."

Dear Mr. Vandekamp:
I would like to thank the Nanaimo Clippers organization and in particular six players from your hockey team for coming out to celebrate Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) at Randerson Ridge Elementary on October 24th. Trevor Fitzgerald, Josh Bryan, Austin Dick, Jesse Neher, Spencer Turcotte and Jayson Argue all took time to help bring home the importance of reading. They were so willing to read to and read with our students during DEAR. They showed up early which gave me time to go over the event and to help them choose books that they might like to read to our students. Trevor did an excellent job of assigning players to classes and everyone was eager to participate. Their attendance at DEAR elevated the event and really helped spotlight the important role reading has in everyone’s life. Our students were so excited to host The Clippers. There were long lines for autographs after the event and all six players patiently and with a lot of fun, signed shirts, books and papers for the students. The event ended at lunch and the Gr. 6 and 7’s were having a game of dodge ball in the gym. Several students asked the players to join them. I assured them that their commitment to us was over and they weren’t obligated to play but as true gentlemen that they are, they didn’t hesitate to join in the game. Thank you for the opportunity to host Trevor, Josh, Austin, Jesse, Spencer and Jayson. It was truly a wonderful day.
