Thanks to the enthusiasm of SAMHA voluteers and supporters, our July 3 fundraiser at Houlton's Midnight Madness was a success, dispite of what was considered a relatively quiet night. Thanks go out to our Dunkees (and the Dunkers) and our concession/goal shooting volunteers.
The Southern Aroostook Minor Hockey Association is looking for a youth hockey parent who would like to serve as the Associaton Coordinator and Educator (ACE), who would primarily act as a go-between the board, team coaches, and parents. For more information, please contact any board member.
Starting with this coming season, SAMHA youth hockey teams will be known as the Junior Blackhawks, after the mascot of the high school Houlton-Hodgdon hockey Blackhawks. Furthermore, the present uniforms, based on those worn by the Washington Capitals from 1995 through 2007, will be scrapped in favor of a template more in line with that worn by the high school team.
Just because we're not running a bottle drive doesn't mean you still can't donate them to SAMHA. Bring your returnables to Florence Avenue Redemption and tell them that the refund is for hockey. Every nickle we receive from your generosity will go towards keeping costs down for our young athletes.
