Storm to wear specialty jerseys commemorating Guelph Armoury on Saturday

The Guelph Storm are proud to unveil plans for the team’s annual Veterans’ Week game on Saturday, November 9th vs. the Kingston Frontenacs. In addition to a special pre-game ceremony in partnership with Guelph’s Royal Canadian Legion Colonel John McCrae Memorial Branch 234, the Storm will be wearing one-of-a-kind jerseys to commemorate the Guelph Armoury.

Guelph’s Amoury is located in downtown Guelph and only a short distance from the Sleeman Centre.  The Armoury stands tall because of its prominent location and conspicuous appearance making it a familiar local landmark in the Royal City and remains a constant reminder of our city’s proud involvement in Canada’s Armed Forces dating back to it’s construction in 1906-07.  Guelph’s Armoury is closely associated with the reform and expansion of the Active Volunteer Militia from 1886 to 1911. The reforms transformed the militia from a citizen militia into an efficient military force prepared for action when the First World War broke out. Guelph’s Armoury was used as both a training and recruitment centre during the ‘Great War’.  Well over a century later, the Armoury continues to operate as a Canadian Forces armoury.

The jerseys worn during the game will be auctioned off following Remembrance Day with all proceeds raised donated locally to Guelph’s Legion Branch 234 , Elora Legion Branch 229 and Fergus Legion Branch 275.

The 2019-20 season is presented by Mark Wilson’s Better Used Cars
