Den for Our West Elk WOLVERINES!!!
October 26, 2014
Dear Wolverines, Lady Blades and Families,
It is time to sharpen those skates that will soon be hitting the ice at Jorgensen Arena! Your Hockey Moms are ready to “drop the puck” on the 2014-15 hockey season!
We are in planning mode for the annual Lasagna Dinner; it will be held at the Fred Field Center (Fairgrounds) on Sunday, November 16, 2014. The event will take place from 5-7:30pm. All WEHA teams benefit, as proceeds are used to help purchase items needed by each group (pucks, equipment, etc.)
Over the years, The “Hockey Moms” have helped to fund major rink construction and building improvement projects, clinics for coaches, team tournaments, as well as team enhancement programs. Hockey Moms was also very proud to be part of the funding initiative during the spring of 2006 that culminated in the construction of Gunnison’s indoor refrigerated rink!
Players: We are asking you to be a big part of the Lasagna Dinner by inviting your friends, family, teachers, neighbors, etc. to join us for an evening of delicious food, prizes, and fun to kick off YOUR season! Prizes will be available with the purchase of door prize tickets. There will also be a silent auction featuring wonderful homemade cakes, pies, cheesecakes, etc. baked by various hockey parents! The price of dinner will be $7 (Adults) and $5 (Children 4-12) and free for hockey fans 3 and under. All tickets will be sold at the door.
Parents: Someone from your player’s team will be contacting you with details about what you can bring for the dinner. We will be soliciting help for kitchen duty, ticket selling, serving and clean-up. This dinner is always a great time and fun community get-together, so please plan to participate! Thanks very much for your help in advance!!
Button Pictures: Hockey Moms will be taking pictures of all players during the first couple of weeks of practice. You will be notified by your coaches/managers as to when this will take place. Two buttons will be made of each player (2/$5) and they will be available for purchase in December.
Thank you again, everyone!
