  • The amount of smiles around the rink were excellent! Thank you to our coaches for helping to coordinate, Santa’s Elf and Santa for making time to stop by the Y!

SHAHA Night Out:

  • Thank you first off to Nichole Hagan and Lindsay Riether as the main organizers of the SHAHA Night Out. The work often goes unnoticed and it is not insignificant.
  • Thank you to all of our teams who put together some fantastic baskets and prizes and thank you to all who attended! It was a great event.
