The Opening of the La Brier Family Arena St. Andrew's College Aurora Ontario Canada

On September 19th, 2014 the dream of Michael J. La Brier, his wife Wendy and St. Andrew's College became reality. A gathering of the La Brier family from Edmonton Alberta, Calgary Alberta, San Antonio Texas, Dallas Texas, Minneapolis Minnesota, and Oshaw Ontario arrived to enjoy this acheivement and honor their Son, daughter in law, Dad, Brother, Uncle and cousin on this special family day.

A surprise presentation of St. Andrew's Saints hockey jerseys was made to Michael Wendy and Michael's father John, it was a very exciting time for the senior La Brier as he had no idea they were going to do this. He was honored to be included along side his son and will cherish this for the rest of his life. The numbers on the jerseys were the lucky numbers of each, secretly given to the presenters. Neither of us knew what the numbers were, coincidental that Michael's and John's were the same.
