Thank You Kiwanis Club

On July 21, 2016, HSC Chair Dan Foster accepted a generous donation from the Kiwanis Club of Augusta on behalf of the Skating Association of Maine. The money will be used to provide scholarships to families so that more kids can experience the great game of ice hockey. The Skating Association of Maine wants to thank Kiwanis for their commitment to local youth athletic programs. You can read about Dan’s visit here: Augusta Kiwanis Club
