Details and volunteer requests for July

Minnesota Hockey Benefit Tuesday Tues 7/19 - 2-3 volunteers wanted

MN Hockey has been good to us. Susie Miller and Jane Cashin are asking for volunteers to help out ...

As a player of MN Special Hockey we hope you have an AMAZING experience on and off the ice. We feel we are a successful program, we have had a lot of success because we receive a lot of support from the State of Minnesota Hockey Community. As we were getting started we hit a lot of brick walls, however everyone time we hit a brick wall, someone from the "State of Minnesota Hockey Community" came through and knocked it down. It might have been an individual who stepped up to coach a team, it might have been a business who donated money, it might have been an organization that let us buy and even donated ice. Without the support we have received we quite honestly would probably not exist today. Periodically we ask for support from all of YOU. They like to see the skaters that are playing hockey, they want to know that they are giving to a great program that has great benefits. People who give us money prefer to see you, our players, at their events not one of us!...

.. We will be looking for a couple volunteers for the MN Hockey Annual Golf Tournament .... We might need just a couple people to help out and show our support for Minnesota Hockey. If you are interested, please contact Jane Cashin at
