Paul Coffey Day  

The official renaming ceremony for Paul Coffey Arena and Park was a huge success!

For those who were unable to attend, thousands of people enjoyed the delicious food supplied free by Longo's and Maple Lodge Farms, premium coffee donated by McCafe, bouncy castles for kids, performances by Hotel California and Newton's Grove and a very special speech given by Paul Coffey. We all watched as he choked up with pride and joy reminiscing about growing up in Malton and how special the Village truly is to his whole family. 

During the ceremony, large donations were made to the fairy tale "Castles" playground to be built in the park Spring 2017 by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Canada) Aerospace and Longo's Family Trust. An even bigger surprise was the very special announcement made by Raptors Superfan, Nav Bhatia. Mr. Bhatia announced the construction of an official NBA-sized basketball court along with multiple practice courts to be built next year!!

The night concluded with Storm Troopers and Darth Vader making an excitingly dramatic entrance to kick start the best fireworks display in the city, set to the theme music of Star Wars! 

Next month, we will be holding a Christmas Market at Westwood Square with horse-drawn wagon rides and Santa coming to town.

Paul Coffey tells the crowd this is the greatest honour in his long hockey career.
