Abby thanks you

Oct. 1st Daily Gleaner Letters
Re: Hockey game fundraiser

We have been blessed with caring and supportive friends - in our Woodstock, Hartland, Fredericton and Maine communities.

The Abby Taylor Fund Committee and the Taylor family would like to thank the many volunteers who helped make the benefit hockey game and silent auction a success Sept. 17.

The numerous sponsors, business people and individuals who supported the game and donated auction items also contributed to the success of the evening. John and Evelyn Clendenning and family - you make the world a better place.

A sincere thank you is extended to the UNB Reds and St. Thomas Tommies and their coaches, Gardiner MacDougall and Mike Eagles, for travelling to Woodstock for the pre-season exhibition hockey game.

Kelly Foster, director of recreation and community services, and the staff at the Carleton Civic Centre offered outstanding support and were an integral part of the success of this evening.

Sam's men's hockey team prepared an awesome post-game meal for both teams. Their efforts were truly appreciated by the Fredericton squads.

To everyone who came to the game, the coaches and players, those who gave from their hearts, and the incredible media coverage that helped make the arena swell to capacity, we offer our deepest appreciation and heartfelt thanks.

The Taylor family and the organizing committee were overwhelmed by the support and generosity of all those able to attend the evening.

The people of western New Brunswick have once again displayed compassion and care for one of their own.

The Abby Taylor Fund Committee and Richard, Rayma, BJ and Abby Taylor

Woodstock, N.B.
