Victoria Royals to honour Canadian Forces families during November games

Special rates available for military members with valid ID

Local military families take the spotlight on the ice as the Victoria Royals honour three Armed Forces members in November.

Royals President and General Manager Cameron Hope said the hockey club is happy to “honour the men and women of our military.”

“The Canadian Forces do our nation’s heavy lifting, at home and all over the world. These families are an important part of our island community and recognizing their contributions is the least we can do,” Hope said.

The Royal Team Store will also offer a 10 per cent discount to all military members with valid ID for all of November.
