This is the 60th consecutive season of hockey in the Cedar Valley. Earlier this summer, the Black Hawks received a treasure trove of historic items from former forward Jim Smith. We have shared just a sampling of this memorabilia through a new page on our site: waterlooblackhawks.com/timecapsule.
We encourage you to take a look and experience some of where Black Hawks hockey has been. As we celebrate this milestone year over the months ahead, we also hope you will share your own memories from following the team at McElroy Auditorium and Young Arena. Whether that's in conversations with your friends and family, by way of social media, or bringing in your own unique mementos for us to take a look at (and possibly share), we encourage you to use this year as an opportunity to remember the things which make the Black Hawks special to all of us.
Where Are They Now features are presented by Karen's Print Rite, 2515 Falls Avenue in Waterloo. The vintage photo with this story is a picture of Jim Smith.
