The annual Joey Lussier Memorial Kickball Tournament took place Sept. 26th to raise funds for a Valemount family after the father fell 100 feet from a grain chute, after they recently relocated to Alberta. Though he is on his feet, he will have to spend several months off work while he recovers. The tournament included a concession and silent auction. “We put our heart & soul into this tournament every year to help people that need a boost & to keep The Joey Lussier Memorial alive!” said organizer Jacki Lussier. “It’s such fun filled weekend for people of all ages! Thank you all once again to family, friends, volunteers & our community.”
She said four teams took part, a smaller turnout this year, but people had a good time. The kids game was a hit where kids played adults dressed up as mascots-Thing 1 and Thing 2 all the way to a T-rex. The kids also got huge goodie bags and a tub of ice cream afterwards. /SUBMITTED
