While it’s great to hear and read about those who give back in thanks to others, it’s simply wonderful to bear witness to such.
After many weeks of planning, co-ordinating and instructing hockey training schools each year, Tom Bast still finds time to offer a gratitude of thanks to hundreds of kids and their families.
This year, he and his team of co-ordinators, coaches, and donators (too many to list) booked the entire Carnival Cinemas facility, virtually every movie available, cooked for hundreds, and handed out dozens of prizes that were simply fantastic. And to cap off a great evening, Tom and Trina waited patiently for the end of each movie to ensure everyone received chocolate and a thankful handshake as they departed.
After nearly three decades of hockey schools, Tom continues to show an excitement for kids’ hockey that would fool anyone into thinking he himself was doing it for the first time. He ensures that his passion for the game both on and off the ice makes a difference for all who find their way through him.
Thanks to Tom, Trina and all the coaches. We know many others feel the same.
