On Monday I attended a video presentation at the Palace Theatre by Roger Brooks. The video screening was made possible by Gary Papik and the LIFT Executive Board.

It’s been a couple of weeks since the youngest Peterson grandson took the ice for his first mini-mite tournament. Tournament maybe isn’t the right word because they didn’t keep score; there was no goalie in the net because there was no net. Come to find out that for the mini-mites instead of nets...
