Dear Sun Prairie Youth Hockey Association (SPYHA) Members,
This weekend (Saturday, June 14th & Sunday, June 15th) begins the landscaping project for Sun Prairie Ice Arena. We are in desperate need of volunteers to help with this task. The volunteer hours are posted on DIBS and it is a great way to get your some of your volunteer hours in before hockey season begins. If you weren’t able to volunteer your time during the building portion of the project, this is your chance to pitch in and brag to family and friends that you were a part of the awesome project! If you did volunteer your time to get the rink built, thank you – it was greatly appreciated, but hopefully you would consider helping again as the timing is crucial to complete this task.
We plan on three crews of 8-10 people to complete this weekend’s activities. McKay Nursery employees and SPYHA members Eric Seidl and Casey Ruefner will be onsite to oversee the installations. They promise volunteer-friendly plantings! If we get enough volunteers we should be able to get the project done in one weekend. We need a minimum of 24 volunteers and a maximum of 30 volunteers. Again – your time will be applied to your annual volunteer commitment. We are allowing 12 to 16 year olds to assist with the project as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also working with them. Tasks will include installation of plantings, trees and general landscaping projects. Please bring your own gardening tools (trowels, shovels, wheelbarrows, etc.) for your use.
Please sign up on DIBS if you are able to help with this important activity. It is the only way to ensure credits are properly applied.
This may be the last letter that I send out to SPYHA membership as my term as President is drawing to a close. It has been a pleasure to serve you this past year. It was a year full of challenges, excitement and many very fun moments. I sincerely thank those who served with me and the SPYHA membership for all your support. I will continue to serve on the board as Past-President and look forward to seeing you around the rink!
Our new facility is the best in the State and the PRIDE of Sun Prairie!
I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has helped to get SPYHA and Sun Prairie Ice Arena this far.
Remember…”It’s More Than Just The Ice.”
Region 4 Vice President
