In what has become an annual tradition, members of the Soo Greyhounds will visit Kinross Correctional Facility in Kinross, Michigan this Saturday afternoon. The visit is organized annually by local volunteer Ross Mervyn with the help of the local Associated Canadian Travellers (ACT) club. Ross has developed athletic programs for several Kinross inmates over the years and was recognized for his work by having the track at the facility named in his honour. Mervyn speaks to the Greyhounds each year about the dangers of drugs & alcohol.
The Hounds will play against the prison hockey team on the outdoor rink at Kinross Correctional Facility. Following the game, the players will receive a tour of the facility and meet with some of the inmates.
