Sooke News Mirror carrier Matthew Mclean

Lucky 13

A series of great events happened for one kid on Friday the 13th

Besides turning 13 on lucky Friday, September 13, 2013, Sooke News Mirror carrier Matthew McLean also learned on that same day that he was the winner of Black Press carrier prize. Matthew gets to bring three (no, not 13) other guests to attend a BC Lions game. On Sunday, September 15 at 1:30 in the afternoon at BC Place, the BC Lions kicked off against the Alouettes De Montreal. Matthew was happily seated in the bleachers along with his father, Mike, his mother Pam, and his sister Riley. The family, said Mike, made a day trip to Vancouver for this event.

 

Matthew has been a carrier for the Sooke News Mirror for over two years now, and was pleasantly surprised (and somewhat embarrassed) when the announcement was made over the PA system at Journey middle school on that audacious birthday-slash-Friday-the-13th morning.
