’Backs invite you to meeting

Salmon Arm SilverBacks are extending an invitation to the community for the club’s second annual Town Hall Meeting and Volunteer Drive

The Salmon Arm SilverBacks are extending an invitation to the entire community for the club’s second annual Town Hall Meeting and Volunteer Drive Wednesday, Aug. 7 at Salmon Arm City Hall.

The SilverBacks will be recruiting for a number of game-night positions, as well as providing information on corporate opportunities and season-ticket packages for the 2013-14 BCHL season.

Fans are invited to interact with players and staff, and to take part in a charity barbecue from 5:30 to 7 p.m. All funds raised will benefit the Shuswap Hospital Foundation.

Following the outdoor events, the public is invited to a question and answer session inside council chambers beginning at 7 p.m.

“This type of evening is a great opportunity for us to connect with, and listen to, our fans,” said SilverBacks head coach/general manager Troy Mick. “We’re certainly grateful to the City of Salmon Arm for lending us their home base for an evening, and on behalf of our organization I hope we’re able to convey to our fans and prospective volunteers how excited we are to hit the ice this fall.”
