Alderman and candidate for re-election Jeremy Thompson will be hosting a free family skate event on Saturday.

In order to encourage Hatters to get out and take an active part in this year’s election, Thompson rented the Encana Arena at the Family Leisure Centre and is hosting a meet and greet on the ice surface from 2:15-3:15 PM on October 2.

“I hope to see citizens from all walks of life at our family skate event,” Thompson said. “My hope is that not only will my current supporters come out, but also people whom I have not yet had a chance to meet or discuss my campaign with.”

Thompson played for the Medicine Hat Tigers before beginning his professional hockey career and also spent time on the ice coaching and directing hockey schools.

“This was a natural fit for a campaign event,” Thompson said. “Not only are we promoting physical activity, but we are encouraging and being involved in our community.”

The skate event immediately follows free family skate time. Patrons are invited to stay after the 1:00 – 2:00 PM public session ends to attend the skate session and meet and greet with Thompson and his family.
