Drumheller Dragons’ sweet secret

IMG 4531

    The Dragons have a special fan, and she knows how to get them to visit.
A batch of her homemade cookies.
    Anne Rogers has been in the valley for 12 years, and while she is a lifelong Calgary Flames fan, she has taken a shine to the Drumheller Dragons. She is also an avid baker.
    “I love to bake, but I don’t want to eat it myself,” she chuckles.
    The Dragons have been coming to visit Manor II where she lives since 2013, she has been baking for them on their visits.
    When she first came to the valley she only went to a few Dragons games, but now she has season tickets. She is a fixture in the arena cheering on her team. She also comes to watch the Junior Dragon events as she has two great grandchildren who are part of the club.
    A couple times a year she also makes sure that the officials, on and off the ice, are taken care of with a big batch of chocolate chip cookies.
    She turns 80 on February 26, and she says the Dragons have to win their home game versus the Okotoks Oilers on February 25.
    As the season rolls to a close however, she is almost done baking. She says she only bakes during the regular season, a sweet hockey superstition.
