Join ’Backs at city hall

Join the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at city hall on Aug. 18.

The Salmon Arm Silverbacks are extending an invitation to the entire community for the club’s fourth annual Town Hall meeting and Volunteer Drive Tuesday, Aug. 18, 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 available for the 2015-16 BCHL season.

Fans are invited to interact with players and staff and to take part in a charity barbecue from 5 to 7 p.m.

All funds raised will benefit the Silverbacks scholarship fund.

Following the outdoor events, the public is invited to a question and answer session with management and coaching staff inside council chambers beginning at 6 p.m.

“This type of evening is a great opportunity for us to connect with, and listen to, our fans,” said Silverbacks 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.”
