Five year old Rebecca passed away from the flu, and in her memory her parents have created an annual gift drive called Rebecca’s Gift. This year Red Devils’ Council has decided to team up with this amazing organization. OT, please bring “teen” gifts to the RDC office from this Monday December 2nd to December 12th. Thank you.

·        Yesterday our Varsity Boys Hockey Team travelled to Glen Abbey Arena to take on the Eagles of Abbey Park. The team found themselves down 2-0 early, but Craig Cook scored a goal in the second period to cut the lead to 2-1. The Devils were hoping to add to their totals but gave up another early goal and could never climb back into the game dropping it 3-1. The team’s next action is next week when they will host Loyola.
