How sweet it is!! Olympic Gold Medal hockey player Jocelyn Laroque, her gold medal and a gym full of students in Ste. Anne - her home town!!!
There aren't many things sweeter for an Olympic athlete than coming home to family, friends and the community where you grew up. Jocelyn Laroque had that opportunity yesterday and what a treat to get to hear, directly from her, what the experience was like and what life is like now that she is back home from Sochi, Russia. You can listen in on her story in the latest AM1250 Podcasts. Congratulations Jocelyn - once again - and well done Ste. Anne for welcoming your hometown hero home in style!!

The bus will fill up quick so don't be shy!! GO PISTONS GO!! #LetsGoPistons.
Natasha Lapiere stopped by the AM1250 studio this morning. She brought another artifact this morning. It's a ledger of the artifacts that first came to the museum. John C. Reimer, the very first curator at the MHV, entered the items, some even accompanied with a small hand drawn picture, in this very book.
On March 22nd they will be having a "Founder's Night" to show recognition and honor to those who got the MHV started. Everyone is welcome, there is no admission and it starts at 7:00 pm. Donations will be accepted. So, come out and celebrate 50 years at the MHV.
11 year old Layne Theirault taking on the world of sport -- tall on the inside!!
It's always a pleasure to highlight young athletes in our community. Layne's story goes back to the day she was born. She was born 3 months early and at just over 2 lbs. She is now a healthy, active young lady playing soccer, volleyball and hockey. Layne is our Maximum Fitness Sports Star of the Week, and we will feature her once again on Thursday morning just before 8:00. If you'd like to hear ALL of Layne's story -- check out the latest AM1250 Podcasts -- her mom Rhonda told us the story. Congratulations Layne - keep going strong - the sky's the limit!!
Today's "Did You Know" went like this: So, we have many faithful listeners -- and sometimes they drop things off at the station -- you know, items of interest... food. We know many of you spend a lot of time driving -- whether commuting or as a profession -- and one of our trucking friends heads into the States on a regular basis and he has discovered that Oreo's in the U.S. come in MANY, MANY patterns, designs, flavours, and more. So, my question of you (Al and Jayme) is what are the 2 latest "limited edition" Oreos that I have received. I have 4 choices and you have to pick the 2 correct ones.
a)Marshmallow Crispy Oreos b)Pina Colada Oreos c)Spring Oreos d)Frosty Oreos. ANSWER: A and C.
Thank you for stopping by and being a real part of everything we do every morning!! Yum!!!
