In addition to those that serve on the board many thanks go out each and every year to those who selflessly step forward in support this organization there are definitely too many to name. The time and effort all of you put forth in support of this organization is greatly appreciated. This organization exists and continues to thrive based on all your support.
This year, as is the case every year, there will be many opportunities for everyone to step up in support of the players, coaches, and the program. Either working the concession stand, being a member of a committee, or working a tournament I would like to encourage all of you to continue support the kids by helping in any way you can.
As always we would like to thank our sponsors and encourage our membership to continue to support our sponsors and the community by patronizing their businesses. You can find our sponsors listed on our website and on the banners and dasherboards at the rinks.
I would like to wish all of you the very best for this upcoming season. With the hope that this will be another fun, exciting, and fulfilling season for our children.
Please check the website often now and throughout the season for news, schedules and event information.
