The Marshfield Youth Hockey Association ( MYHA ) is continuing to grow and improve the facilities available to the youth of Marshfield . Construction during the Spring of 2009, added 2 new large locker rooms with shower facilities, a storage room and a garage for the Zamboni. In an effort to "go green", more energy efficient and economical lighting was placed in the rink area in the fall of 2011 and in the spring of 2012 more energy efficient lighting was installed in the concession stand area. In addition, the Board made several improvements to the outdoor hockey rink in 2011.
Overall these improvements have resulted in costs of approximately $230,000. Original fundr aising efforts in 2009 for the building addition resulted in contributions of $136,979.
Currently, the MYHA Board is looking into painting the ceiling, redoing the concessions stand area, and adding an entry way. Costs of these projects are expected to be approximately $100,000.
As you can see improvements and updates to our rink are ongoing. In addition, there is always the chance that funds may be needed for major repairs or replacements, such as the Zamboni. We are asking you to contribute to MYHA ’s efforts to continue to improve the rink for the enjoyment of our youth. Not only is the youth hockey membership on the rise, the figure skating club, silver laces, continues to grow as well. The upkeep and improvement of our arena is of great importance to these young boys and girls. Any amount is welcome. We can arrange for a single donation, monthly donations or a yearly donation for a period of 1-3 years. Many of you have given generously in the past, and you can see what we have done with your money, built an excellent arena. Every cent donated will go towards the improvements. All donations are tax deductible as we are a 501c3 organization, CES number 031862. This capital campaign will benefit all those utilizing the rink, whether it be the hockey players, our figure skating club, or those that choose to enjoy their Saturday evenings at open skate. On completion, there will be a donor plaque prominently displayed in the arena with donor names listed proportional to the individual donation. If you have donated in the past and your current donation moves you up a level, your old plaque will be updated to represent your total donations over the years.
