Serving, Service, Served...

If there is something in your life that has brought you great joy and reward the least you can do is give back to it. It doesn't have to be cool or hip, it just has to mean something to you.

Sure, volunteering to walk abandoned puppies and feeding orphans are noble and heartfelt gestures, but what about the things that helped shape you personally?

As anyone who knows me would confirm, I'm crazy about [ice] Hockey. I have been playing for over 30 years, coaching for over 8 and have been a lifelong fan. The sport has brought me pain and joy but overall has brought me life experiences that have helped to shape the person I am proud to be today. As a result I am a co-founder of the MAHSHL and sit on the board as well as actively involved with the development of youth hockey in the metro area.

Once we identify the things that have shaped us and made us the people we are it is our duty to take the hand off and provide the same opportunities to grow that we were afforded.
