The note started… Although this is a request on how to make a donation, there is a short story concerning the discovery of the gift itself.
Between 1976 and 1984 the ‘Esquimalt Blades’ senior men’s hockey team played late Sunday nights at the Archie Browning Sports Centre.
More than thirty years later, while downsizing, team member David Everard was going through his hockey bag. Much to his surprise, he found a stray envelope inside of a ‘sanitary’ sock at the bottom of the bag. Inside the sock was $260 of old, paper currency. As he recalls it, the money had been intended as some sort of a petty cash to be used in case of an emergency.
Luckily, he managed to track down some of the players involved and they agreed that the proper thing to do was to donate the money to Minor Hockey. They even rounded the amount up to an even $300.
So, with all in agreement, the Esquimalt Blades have made a donation to VMHA in memory of their friend, teammate and goaltender extraordinaire Dave Smith.
VMHA is grateful for the donation and have put the funds towards supporting the development of our newest initiation and novice hockey members.
