"This is an amazing community and I couldn't be more happy to be part of it," said MTL Hockey Trustee and parent Alexandra DeRonde. "The MTL House was THE place to be tonight. We had people coming and going literally all night dropping off their donations, hanging out, and meeting new friends and neighbors. It was a great night."

The MTL Executive Board and MTL Hockey Trustees sent their thanks and gratitude to everyone in the community for their support and donations.
