Small Town Hockey
Ah rumours, rumours, rumours.  It would seem that rumours are inevitable in any town - who is dating whom, who said something, who didn't say something, etc., and Grand Valley Minor Hockey is not exempt.  Before things get out of hand and we start to hear that GVMH is pregnant and driving a sports car, let's take a look at the facts:

First of all, Grand Valley Minor Hockey is staying Grand Valley Minor Hockey.  At the close of last season, an overwhelming majority voted to keep minor hockey strong in Grand Valley.  Our 2014/2015 season is coming up and we are neither amalgamating nor folding.  However, we are saddened to announce that GVMH will not have teams at either the Midget or Bantam levels this year.  Simply put, there are not enough interested players at these ages. That said, we will definitely be rostering teams at the Mite, Tyke, Novice, Atom, and Peewee levels.  We are also incredibly excited about our new Girls' Development Program which has almost 20 registrants! 
The bottom line is that the time has passed for all the rumours.  Let's all band together to give our players a season of fun, high-quality hockey.  We have a solid foundation in place and let's all do our best to keep small town hockey alive.

Erin Auto Recyclers
Erin Auto Recyclers is a family run business that has been operating since 1958. Owned and operated by Rob Smith, Elayne McSkimming & their 2 sons, Erin Auto Recyclers along with their employees work hard to ensure that vehicles are recycled properly. Erin Auto Recyclers are proud to be recognized by the Clean Air Foundation as the first in Canada to recover mercury switches from ABS breaking assemblies. Recovering ABS assemblies along with convenience lighting switches is an important achievement because such assemblies often contain three mercury switches that together contain over 2.5 grams of mercury, a harmful neurotoxin. These assemblies can also take more time to find and remove from end of life vehicles than other switches, proving that Erin Auto Recyclers is dedicated to their company mission of continuously moving forward and improving upon everything that affects the environment and quality of life.
