They are all from the Langley Minor Lacrosse Association.

The players will be doing a bottle drive on July 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. behind the George Preston Recreation Centre (208 Street and 42 Avenue) as well holding a hot dog sale on July 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Otter Co-op (3650 248 St.).

They are also selling cookie dough, accepting donations and picking up bottles.

To do so, contact Kellie Ohlmann at 604-309-3226 or


Another LMLA player, Jordan Daniel, will play for the Team BC boys team at the minor box lacrosse national championships.
