Plymouth Whalers open the 2013 pre-season schedule on Saturday, August 31 at 7
pm against Windsor at Eddie Edgar Ice Arena in Livonia, a heartfelt and
inspiring back story will take center stage in a big way.
One hundred percent of the proceeds generated in the game benefit the Livonia Fallen Heroes
Memorial at the Larry Nehasil Park in Livonia.
Tickets run $10 in advance and $12 at the door.
Tickets can be purchased at Livonia Police Department (734-466-2470), Compuware
Arena (734-453-8400), Eddie Edgar Ice Arena (734-427-1280), Livonia Chamber of Commerce
(734-427-2122) and the
Livonia Community Recreation Center (734-466-2900).
Nehasil Park and the Livonia Fallen Heroes Memorial were created as a memorial
to the service of late police officers Larry Nehasil, Ervin Johnston, James
Kelley and Sidney Dethloff and fireman Gary Kreski. Ground breaking for the project happened on
July 17, with the anticipated completion sometime during the summer of 2014.
Fans attending the game will have a direct effect on
the completion of the project.
