Thanks to all our player and parents that came out to participate in our annual skate the kids living in McKinney Housing Authority residences. Through your efforts we were able to provide an enjoyable time on the ice for a bunch of little ones who have not ever (or very often) been on the ice.
Our players and parents help to set up party rooms so that we could sever pizza, cupcakes and some drinks before the events. Our players then helped the kids to tie their skates and to get around the ice. By the end, some of the kids were flying around the rink, even if it was only with the assistance of some strong hockey players to help keep them up.
It is always a great event.
Special thanks to the DrPepper StarCenter in McKinney for supporting the event with free usage of the party rooms and free skate rentals and public skates for the participants.
