Letter from the President

As you may know, the SPYHA annual membership meeting was held at the end of May. During this meeting, elections were held for the 2017-2018 board. The results were:

Kristi Tennie – mini-mite rep

Paula Austad – mite rep

Carrie Rose – squirt rep

Chris LaRowe – pewee rep

OPEN – bantam rep

Suzanne Doody – midget rep

Jason Ledford – coaches’ rep

Nichole Jesberger – treasurer

OPEN – president-elect

I want to really emphasize the fact that we have no president-elect at this point. This is a huge problem. For this last year, the board has been making do without a secretary. It has been hard at times, and I really hope we haven’t been missing anything, but the board and organization can’t function without a president. Also, according to our by-laws, a president-elect needs to be elected by the membership (meaning another meeting will need to be called). It is not a position that can be appointed by the board like the bantam rep and secretary position can be.

Why do I send this letter? We need your help. We need everyone to really think about how you can help SPYHA be the best hockey association around. We sent more invoices for unfulfilled volunteer hours this year than we ever have in the past. I hear from many people that they just don’t have time, but you do. Imagine all the time it would take to drive your hockey player somewhere else to play hockey if people don’t volunteer to keep SPYHA running.

Please let me know if you have any desire or interest in serving on the board (or anything else for SPYHA). We need a president-elect, bantam rep, and secretary. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them.

Best Regards,
Stacy Hollfelder
SPYHA President

Save Our Seats Fundraiser

Save our Seats – A Bleacher Project Fundraiser
 
When our new ice arena was built, the budget was tight, and to finish the building, a few items that were deemed non-essential were cut, including bleachers.  As a result, the “seats” at Sun Prairie Ice Arena are concrete.   The time has come to put this finishing touch on the arena.  The bleachers cost $25,500, assuming volunteer installation.   Our goal is to raise the funds in February so that materials can be ordered and the new bleachers installed during spring and early summer.
 
Sun Prairie Youth Hockey has agreed to coordinate this fundraising initiative, committing to match up to $6,500 of funds raised by others who call Sun Prairie Ice Arena home.  They are requesting support from the booster clubs for the boys and girls high school hockey team, OBHL members, and Skating Academy/free-style participants.  All donors (businesses, families, or individuals) of $100 or more will be recognized on a donor plaque.  To help each group raise a share of the money needed, Sun Prairie Youth Hockey has arranged for a special Bleacher Project discount card that provides discounts at area businesses in exchange for a $20 (or more) contribution to the bleacher fundraiser.   These cards will be distributed to coordinators within each group within the next week, with each group asked to sell a specific number of cards.  Additional details will be shared with each coordinator. 
 
Thank you for your support of this important project.
