With Thanksgiving approaching, I want to start out by thanking the 2013-2014 Gene Hart Award Winner, Mr. Steve Mason for being our guest at the last meeting. The Gene Hart Award is given annually to the player who plays with the most hear, as voted on by the Fan Club at various meetings during the year. Steve was a great guest answering questions and telling us stories about his life in hockey. Steve signed autographs and took pictures with those in attendance. At the end of the meeting, I presented Steve with a $2,000 check payable to his charity “SickKids Foundation of Toronto”. If you would like to be a part of picking the Gene Hart Award winner for this season, please attend the monthly meetings. This month’s player of the month was Jakub Voracek.
I also want to thank the members of the Fan Club who attended the New York City trip to see the musical play Beautiful: The Carol King Story. The play was tremendous, especially with Tony Award Winner Jessie Mueller in the part of Carol King. It was amazing to see how many songs she wrote in her career before she became a recording artist herself. I highly recommend this show to anyone who enjoyed her music. Hopefully more people will join us on our next outing.
Since this is our holiday issue, I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving, and a very Happy Holiday season. Let there be Peace on Earth and Good Will towards others.
Joe Fisher, President
