Orangeville Junior A Flyers Team and Staff Provide Home-Cooked Meals
On Sunday, April 27th, 2014 a group of 12 Orangeville Junior A hockey team players and staff cooked dinner for about 100 of the residents of the Ronald McDonald House (RMDH) in Toronto.
The Home for Dinner program invites groups to prepare a meal in the House kitchens for the families staying at RMDH. Once the team learned of the opportunity, Eileen Warren, Director of Community Events, spearheaded the involvement of the Orangeville Junior A Flyers in this initiative.
The Orangeville Junior A Flyers hockey club generously provided the donation for all the food purchased. Families enjoyed a wonderful, home cooked meal of spaghetti, penne, Caesar salad, garlic bread, veggies and dip and an endless selection of yummy desserts.
The heartfelt appreciation received from the residents was overwhelming. It was moving to be able to make life the tiniest bit easier for people that who are coping with the stress of taking care of their families as well as a seriously ill child so far from home on a daily basis.
What these families are going through is unimaginable to most people. It was apparent how much they appreciated coming back to the comfort of a home.

Flyers Hire Caruso as New Head Coach
The Orangeville Jr. A Flyers will be headed in a new direction for the 2014-2015 Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) season and will be looking to recently named head coach Jamie Caruso to lead the way.
Caruso, who coached the Mississauga Rebels AAA Midgets for the past four seasons, will replace Kevin Stone behind the Flyers bench for the upcoming year and has been handed the task of coordinating the Flyers rise up the standings.
And there is nowhere to go but up!
The Flyers finished last in the OJHL with a 4-46-1-2 record this past season, and will be looking to overhaul the club for the year ahead.
Stone has been with the Flyers for the past three seasons, two as an associate coach with Bob Noble, before taking over the head coaching duties when Noble retired prior to the past campaign.
“Unfortunately the team’s record speaks for it self and management feels that is time for a change,” said general manager Dana Baker, in announcing the coaching change. “Kevin Stone is a good coach and an outstanding person with a lot of hockey knowledge. He will undoubtedly return to coaching at a high level in the near future.”
Baker added that Stone has been offered an opportunity to stay in the organization.
Caruso and his new staff are no strangers to the Orangeville area. Caruso is a Bolton resident while assistant coaches Aaron Alphonso, Bill Bradford and Craig Teeple, all hail from Orangeville. Lucky DeGrazia, the owner of Brampton’s Varsity Hockey Training Centre, will handle player development. Varsity will handle all the dryland training for the team next season.
