The Cornwall Colts took part in the Smile Cookies program to support Rachel’s Kids on Wednesday. Several players delivered cookies to staff and patients at Dr. Rachel Navaneelan’s Cosmetic Dentistry office.  The cookies were purchased for $1 each at Cornwall Tim Horton’s locations.  Rachel’s Kids will benefit from the proceeds from the sale of Smile Cookies until September 18.

“Making kids smile by giving them a cookie is a great feeling,” said Colts star Liam Lascelle.

“We really like being able to support community groups,” said Colts star Jeremy McFarlane.

The Colts (4-0) will be back in action tonight (Sept. 15), hosting Cumberland (2-3).  Memorial Cup-winning coach and former NHL coach Doug Carpenter will be the guest of honour and autographing his biography, with all money raised going to the Children’s Treatment Centre.  Game time at the Ed Lumley Arena is set for 7:30pm.
