According the the Castlegar & District Hospital Auxiliary Society; Castlegar IS Kraft Hockeyville. Over the past 50 years we have had the pleasure of providing new and used hockey equipment for sale within our community. Many will remember purchasing their first pair of skates or that pair of mid season skates from the auxiliary when your child suddenly had a growth spurt. In our retail thrift store (The Treasure Shop) we have been selling hockey skates, equipment, jerseys and hockey collectibles for over 20 years.
We are fortunate to live in a community that entrusts us with their generous donations and we offer them for sale to the community at large. The monies raised at the Treasure Shop go to furthering health care in the Castlegar area. Our team of dedicated volunteers some of whom are parents or grandparents of Castlegar and former NHL hockey players understand the value and dedication necessary in keeping hockey alive in our community.
The dedication of the families, coaches, players, volunteers and the community as a whole all working together to provide opportunities for our youth to experience the sport of hockey is something we are all honoured to be part of. Working together, with our dedicated community we are certain that “Castlegar is worthy of the title “Kraft Hockeyville”.
