Mail Bag - May 2, 2013
The Canucks community department recently received the following letter from Patrick Young, principal at Seaview Elementary School in Lantzville.
As the Canucks approach the playoffs, I wanted to pass along the emotional and passionate support of the Canucks shown/felt by our school.
Our school has just completed the fundraising and installation of a memorial playground that was built for two young boys who died in a tragic fire last year. In celebration of the boys’ love of the Canucks, the playground is painted in Canuck blue and green.
The boys were not alone in their love for our hometown Canucks. Our halls and classrooms regularly have students wearing their Canuck Blue and Green.
In celebration of the completion of the playground, and in recognition of the boys’ and our school’s love of the Canucks, we held a Canuck green and blue day; we took a photo to commemorate the moment (above). Although the playground is barely visible due to the mass of blue and green clad bodies, it reminds us of the excitement that is brewing as the playoffs approach.
So … from the Students and Staff of Seaview Elementary - Go, Canucks, Go!
What fantastic support! All of us at Canucks Sports & Entertainment appreciate it.
