FALL RIVER: The Fall River and Beaver Bank and area communities showed their support towards the community of Humboldt, Sk. and the Broncos hockey team on April 12, which was dubbed nationwide as Jersey Day.

Reporter Pat Healey was invited to three area schools and stopped by a couple of businesses where he snapped photos of people and the students donning jerseys. More coverage on twitter @Laker_PatHealey and in the May issue.

Here are a couple of the photos:

Students at Beaver Bank-Kinsac Elementary School were among some across the area who wore jerseys or green to school as part of a tribute to the Humboldt Broncos on April 12, following their tragic bus crash that left 16 team members and officials dead. The students also collected $300 plus which will be sent to the team. (Healey photo)

The Me-to-We group at GP Vanier Junior High are pictured here as some of the student population at the Fall River school that wore green or a team jersey in honour of the Humboldt Broncos on Jersey Day on April 123. Jersey Day was a national campaign started by a mom in B.C. as a way to show support for the Broncos who were in a fatal bus crash that took the lives of 16 team members in Saskatchewan.
