Hounds give back to local community

When the Hartland Hounds hosted Tennyson Chevrolet back on Dec. 1 at the Hartland Sports Center, there was more than a game going on.

Off the ice, more than 300 spectators took in the game and donated 86 coats and nearly 100 canned goods. The coats were delivered to three area shelters and the food was donated to the Gleaners Food Bank.

Also at the game, Southwest Elementary music teacher Teresa Wilder and 13 fifth graders from the school performed the “Star Spangled Banner” and also sang “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” and “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town” at the intermissions.
