Hockey talk
Retired NHL right-winger Rob Brown relaxes during questions from Angela Boucher’s Grade 7 class at Georges H. Primeau. Brown, who played 11 season in the NHL, answered questions about his life and career.

The hockey player was one of the four readers for Read-in-Week and read passages from Undergrounders by David Skuy, a story about a young boy wanting to play hockey. Other readers included Trustee Noreen Radford, Paul Smith and former Primeau student Christan Maslyk. – Lucie Roy Photo

Art on dispaly

A veteran honoured
John Hamilton was smiling as he said he is now “an Ambassador for Peace”. Hamilton received a medal, a mini replica for official attire and a pin from the Republic of Korea. The Ambassador for Peace Official Proclamation he received reads: “It is a great honor and pleasure to express the everlasting gratitude of the Republic of Korea and our people for the service you and your countrymen have performed in restoring and preserving our freedom and democracy. We cherish in our hearts the memory of your boundless sacrifices in helping is re-establish our Free Nation. In grateful recognition of your dedicated contributions, it is our privilege to proclaim you an Ambassador For Peace with every good wish of people of the Republic of Korea. Let each of us reaffirm our mutual respect and friendship that they may endure for generations to come.”

In 2010 Hamilton had also received a letter from Korea when they commemorated the 60th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korea War, which paid tribute to his commitment in protecting liberty and freedom. – Lucie Roy Photo
