They’re going to be provided the tools and invited to paint anti-bullying message of support, compassion, kindness, or empathy on the ice, said rec centre supervisor Keith Holloway.

The public painting event takes place this Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

Then, another coat of clear ice will be applied, in advance of the Rivermen’s final home games on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 24 and 25.

The Rivermen play at The Lodge, in the George Preston Recreation Centre at 20699 42nd Ave.

There is a cost to participate in the painting party. It’s $10 per person, and it includes a ticket to one of the two weekend games. Saturday, they play against Merritt at 7 p.m., and Sunday against Prince George at 2 p.m.

Ahead of that, they’re playing thieir final away game of the season on Friday, Feb 23 in Coquitlam.
