The Peterborough Petes are excited to recognize deserving local frontline workers with the Frontline Workers Drop the Puck program.
The Petes recognize that this past year and a half has required additional time, effort and a tremendous amount of dedication from the frontline workers throughout Peterborough and the Kawartha Lakes.
Each week, the Petes will recognize and celebrate one frontline worker who was nominated by a colleague, member of the community or employer for their extraordinary work throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Petes will be accepting applications recognizing frontline workers across all industries. These industries include, but are not limited to, first responders, food and agriculture, manufacturing, public transit workers, grocery store workers, and construction.
Nominations for this program will open Friday, July 30 and the window to nominate frontline workers will remain open until Friday, August 20. The Petes will be selecting one nominee per week starting on Monday, August 9. The frontline workers who are selected will be invited to participate in the ceremonial puck drop alongside Fully Promoted powered by Signarama when the Petes return to the Memorial Centre for their home opener on October 14 against the Sudbury Wolves.
Fans can nominate the same individual as many times as they would like. The more nominations an individual receives will result in a better chance of being selected to drop the puck at the Petes home opener.
Puck droppers will be determined based on the number of nominations that are submitted highlighting their work, in conjunction with a review of the reasons they were nominated.
The Petes will welcome the Sudbury Wolves and first overall draft pick Quentin Musty for their home opener on Thursday, October 14 at 7:05 pm. Tickets are now on sale for the 2021-22 season.
