President’s Thoughts
By Vicki Silva

This years hockey season has ended for us. I understand that many fans feel that without a playoff, that the competent nature of the sport left a lot to be desired. I do not see it that way. I was/am very happy to have sat in my seat at the arena and watch our players develop. Yes, I know that we will not see P.O. Joseph back here again, but I was very happy to talk to him last year at our meeting and then watch him play here and then move up. I am sad that because of the pandemic we missed a whole year of activities and interaction with the club.

Next season, I hope everything will have returned to normal and that
this past experience will have taught us to fully appreciate our team. Again,
as the NHL expands and moves on, we are left losing some of our rivals and
gaining new ones. I am so looking forward to a few bus trips, meeting new people
and renewing old friendships.

I have found that one of the best ways to gain an understanding of our hockey
family is to attend the annual booster club convention. I also understand that many fans do not feel comfortable attending a large group of people outside of your personal friends and family. Yet, I also wonder how our grandparents must of dealt with the same issues and over came them to the point that we were last year?

I hope that we can return to our monthly meetings with players, giveaways and interesting conversations. I miss my hockey family, we will be together soon. In the mean time….
Let’s Go Pens!!!!
