Hockey Donation

Here's us (Scott, Brice and Carrie) along with Chamber's Sonya and Katie (in the front) during the Chamber's Golf Outing on May 31st.

Photo: Thank you to Mitchell Telecom for being an Exclusive Sponsor at the 10th Annual Chamber Golf Classic!

Why is that important? Well, during the tournament we were sponsoring Hole #18 and playing a couple games for a couple great prizes. One of those prizes happened to be an iPad Mini and we asked interested golfers to pitch in $5 in hopes of winning the mighty-mini. Nearly $500 later ($491 to be exact - I don't know how we ended up with the extra $1), Sally Moody won herself an iPad and we had some money to donate to a worthy cause.

We choose to give the cash to the Mitchell Skating and Hockey Association as they work to pay for the second sheet of ice currently under construction and help pay for the many extras they'll need to make that place sparkle. What a great group for Mitchell and one that really loves their sport. Best of luck to them and we're happy to play a really small part of that effort.
