If you were driving down Brock St. on Saturday around 1pm you would have noticed a lot of activity out front of the arena.
The Sarnia Arena is now officially known as The Pat Stapleton Arena. The ribbon cutting ceremony was held this past Saturday with the Stapleton family in attendance. Pats wife, Jackie did the honours of officially opening the newly named arena.
After the ribbon cutting, we all headed inside for the long anticipated 1st Annual Sarnia Legionnaires Alumni game. Included in attendance were Ray Griffen, Mike Bondy, Jim Harvie, Mickey Mullen, Bill Abercrombie, Mike Stapleton, Jerry Jacobs, Mark Mullen, Brandon Biggers, Jason Simon, Steve Bryce, Pat Crombeen, Brian Crombeen, Bob Gardiner, Brad Wilson, Mark Armstrong, Joe Panik, Mike Anning, Tim Horley, John Bernier, Chuck Robbins, Brett Walling, Gary McLellan, Ross Dark, Ray Germain, Dan ROse, Mike Hart, Doug White, Jack McKenna, Bruce “Sam” Coulter, Ryan Williamson, Fred Pageau, Darryl Lennon, Claire Moffatt, Paul Burgess, Doug Caley, Don Pereira, Glenn McKinnon, Dave Anger, Brian Stack Matt Churchill, Joseph Cowley, Jordan Hurtubise, Jim Maitland
