A rally is planned for the Acadia hockey Axemen in advance of their trip to the University Cup championship in Saskatoon.
Fans are invited to Wolfville Elementary School on March 17 at noon for a town-wide send-off.
The hockey Axemen will arrive at noon and visit students at the school. RCMP and the Wolfville Fire Department will then escort the Acadia bus through the downtown as it departs for the airport.
