PDMHA is celebrating the 75th anniversary with a Minor Hockey day reunion on November 4th!  The Toronto Maple Leafs will be bringing Red Kelly's banner home to Port Dover on this day as well!  

 Port Dover Minor Hockey Association will be celebrating a huge milestone in conjunction with acknowledging one of its most famous past players.  In 2017 minor hockey turns 75!  On Saturday, November 4th the Port Dover Minor Hockey Association will be hosting its 75th Anniversary Reunion.  The day will consist of an Open House from 1-3pm at the Community Centre, the Annual Skate A Thon from 130-330pm, an alumni game at 430pm and a dance from 7pm-1am.  As an added bonus,  PDMHA will be working with the Toronto Maple Leafs on their Centennial Banner Homecoming Tour to repatriate Red Kelly’s banner to Port Dover from the Air Canada Centre.  The Maple Leafs will bring alumni players, prizes, Carleton the bear and will help us host the banner unfurling ceremony for Red before the alumni game.  Hamilton Bulldogs have offered and are excited to be part of our festivities as well!   There will be more activities and events for everyone of all ages as the plans continue to take shape.   It will be an exciting day not only for minor hockey but for the entire town!  Minor hockey is putting out a call to anyone that may have pictures or memorabilia to share and we will be looking for players and honorary coaches for our alumni game.  We would like to have some representation from each of the three twenty five year eras.  Rick Wamsley has already answered the call and will be part of our celebrations and play in the alumni game!  If you are interested in playing in the alumni game or have anything to share for the Open House, please email Marg Ryerse at [email protected].  Watch for more upcoming stories in the Maple Leaf as we present each of the twenty five year eras over the next few months.  Port Dover has always been a big hockey town and has thrived on the support of this community.  It has produced champions on and off the ice.  It has taught kids skills and built life long relationships.  This is the day to share and celebrate the successes and longevity of hockey in this great little town!
