There is a second Town Hall meeting scheduled on Wednesday, April 24th at 7pm in the Blue Line Room at the Flight Exec Centre. This is a last chance to ask questions and learn more regarding the potential reorganization between Dorchester Minor Hockey,  Aylmer Minor Hockey, and Belmont Minor Hockey.

The DMHA members will be asked to vote on the Reorganization Tuesday April 30th at the Flight Exec Centre upstairs in the Blueline room from 7:00 – 9:00pm. Every member of DMHA at all levels of hockey is strongly encouraged to vote.
