Toy Drive, Tomorrow 12/11

Dear Thunder Hockey Families,

I am writing on behalf of the grant program that I oversee. The preschool program serves children and families who come from at risk situations, are living in poverty, and some in shelters. Last year we were able to support over 50 children by our toy drive at the rink. This year we would like to be able to once again help  children who may otherwise not receive Christmas gifts this year.We will be holding a toy drive collecting new unwrapped toys on Tuesday December 11th from 6-9:30 during skills. 

 

 Any donations that our hockey families would be willing to make, would be greatly appreciated. The students at the program are all 4 or 5 years old, but many have siblings as well, so new toys for children ages 2 through 10, would all be welcomed donations. If you cannot make it to the rink on Tuesday, December 11th, but would like to drop off a donation, please email me at

Locker Rooms and other updates

Parents,  

Hopefully everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  We are almost through our third month of hockey, if you can believe it!?!?  Almost half way there.  A couple of quick and important updates for you as you do you cyber monday shopping:

  • LOCKER ROOMS - High School practice starts this week. That means the Haverhill boys will be on immediately before us. They will use the showers after practice. I would ask that mothers and female siblings not enter the locker area for at least the mite hour, for your sake and the HS boys'.
  • Practice times - Be on the lookout for different practice times. We lose our 5pm practice hour most days now. Skills will start 1 hour later for each session. We also have some Wednesday ice to make up for the lost hours. 
  • Cash Calendars -  Cash Calendars have been given to your coaches for distribution. If you do not have your packet yet, please see your head coach. We will begin collecting funds and stubs in January. If you need extra calendars, please let me know. I wil typically be at the rink on Tuesdays from 7-9 and can get you more. 
  • Tuition Payments - Final balances are due. If you have not paid in full, please do so now. We have paid all of our game bills and much of our practice ice. If you have any questions, email Jamie at ghpyhtreasurer@gmail.com

If you have any other questions, please let myself or a board member know. GO THUNDER!

Cash Calendar Fundraiser

It's that time of year again! The cash calendars are in and the Winter Fundraiser will begin this week. We'll be handing out packets to each coach/team manager. Just in time to sell them to Aunts and Uncles at the Thanksgiving dinner table!

This fundraiser is a critical tool in helping us keep our costs among the lowest in the area. The fundraiser has typically raised enough to pay for our march practice ice bill.  It’s also a great way for the kids to give back to our league. Not to mention the chance to have some friends and family win some cash! Prizes range from $100-$500 per day!

As in years past, each player is required to sell a minimum of 10 calendars, though there is no limit. In fact, the more you sell, the better chances you have to win great prizes like: Bruins tickets, Pride Hockey summer clinic and more! 

As in years past, we’ll use February as our month to draw our winners. Please see you coach Tuesday at skills to grab your calendars.  All calendar stubs and collections are due no later than 1/22/19 to your child's coaches. We’ll be collecting completed stubs and entry fees after the new year.  We'll coordinate times during skills in January to have board members present to collect envelopes.

Thank you for supporting this important fundraiser for the league!

Go Thunder!

A fitting date/time will be sent out after successful payment. You will go to TSR Hockey at 5 Kelly Rd. Salem, NH to pick up your equipment before the first session.
