A game for Cooper

by Laura Cisneros

This past weekend the Edson community suffered a tragic loss when a member of the RCMP was travelling home with his son.

We were advised that approximately 25 KMs east of Edson their vehicle struck a snow plow. We are sad to report that their 6 year old son Cooper died at the scene. We were further advised that the member escaped with minor injuries. Details of the accident are not known.

The Edson Aeros are planning a tribute to Cooper as he was a huge Aeros fan and also a player in the Edson Minor Hockey system. They would would like to extend to you an invitation to participate in the pre-game memorial to Cooper. We understand that Coopers mom, who is also an RCMP member will be in attendance. 

All Edson Minor Hockey Association players that wear their jersey will be admitted for free to Friday nights game.

The Edson Aeros are asking for small financial donation for a trust fund being established.

The Edson Aeros and, The Edson Kids in Sports Association, are making a financial contribution of $1000.00 towards the trust fund.

The Aeros will hold a moment of silence before the game. The Aeros as well as Coopers team will form a circle at center ice. 

Thank you for your consideration.
