It's the hockey fan's equivalent of the Holy Grail, the Golden Fleece and the Hope Diamond. The pomp and circumstance that surrounds Lord Stanley's sterling silver award is as fascinating as its journey through time, and the legendary names etched all along its circumference.

Everyone's welcome to stop by, congratulate Trevor, and snap some photos, from 2:30 until 4 PM at the Middletown Arts Center on Church Street.
