Last weekend the division for 35-and-older participants in the Donald Keddy Memorial Hockey Tournament was played in the Westville Miners Sports Centre, with the “No Stars” winning the Donald Keddy Memorial Trophy.

The 35-and-under division takes place this weekend. The organizer of the tournament, Bookie MacDonald, donates the proceeds after expenses to the Pictou County Prostate Cancer Support Association.

A 12-year-old boy from Westville expressed a desire to raise funds for the Donald Keddy Memorial Fund and has been growing his hair so it could be cut off at centre ice during the tournament, forwarded to Halifax where it could be made into wigs for boys undergoing chemo treatment in Halifax.

The “hair cutting ceremony” will take place during one of the games this weekend and proceeds donated to the Memorial Fund. Also this weekend, tickets are being sold for a first prize of an all inclusive trip for two to Cuba with a second prize of a “Smart” Samsung 46" TV.
