Last year after the horrific recoveries at Residential Schools, OWFL connected with Six Nations Girls Field Lacrosse to work towards reconciliation through education. LBK stepped up as a club that donated the most to the OWFL initiative.
This year, we took it a step further, and turned our host weekend orange. Roy's Enterprise designed a special shirt for our host weekend. LBK also sold wristbands and stickers the weekend of June 17-19 in Oshawa.
