Six Nations to hold community-wide lacrosse celebration

SIX NATIONS – Lacrosse history has been made in Six Nations with four teams achieving provincial titles at the highest level of Lacrosse. No other community in Canada has ever achieved such a high level of victory in Lacrosse. Three out of four local teams then went on to win their national title, with the fourth team coming in second in their division. The Jr. B Rebels took first place winning the Founders Cup and the Jr. A Arrows won the Minto Cup. The Sr. B Rivermen came in second for the Presidents Cup, and the Sr. A Chiefs brought home the Mann Cup.

This historic event has gained community-wide attention and support. Therefore, the Six Nations Elected Council is planning a huge celebration and will be hosting a pot luck style luncheon with all four lacrosse teams, their friends, family, and community members who have supported them throughout the season on Saturday, November 15, 2014 from 2-7pm at the Community Hall, 1738 Fourth Line Rd, Ohsweken. There will also be speeches by team personnel, community members, and the Six Nations Elected Chief, Ava Hill. Afterwards, there will be a fundraising dance at the Hungarian Hall in Brantford at 395 Park Rd N, Brantford. Funds raised will go towards an organization within the community.
