The Janas Rink is still closed for repairs therefore cancelling practice for Wednesday 2/25. I just spoke to the management group and they are optimistic that they will be open by this weekend for our practices. That being said, nothing is certain.
The Board has been working diligently to contact other rinks in our area looking for practice ice for our teams. Unfortunately, spare ice time is a rare thing during hockey season. I know this has been frustrating to you as parents as well as your skaters and we are hopeful that by this weekend, things will be back to normal (as normal as things get at the Janas Rink)
UMass Lowell River Hawks Hockey will be hosting a "Super Nick Night" Fundraiser on February 28th during the UML vs Vermont Game. Tickets are $10 each and a portion of the proceeds will go towards the Super Nick Memorial Fund. Nick was adopted to the River Hawks in October of 2011 through Team IMPACT (Inspire, Motivate, and Play Against Challenges)
If you would like to purchase tickets, please contact Joanne Warner at email@example.com or 617-605-5650. She will be at the rink on weekends with tickets available.

If making payments using a debit card, GLYSA would appreciate your help in reducing transaction fees by having you use "Bank Transfer" instead of visa or master card. GLYSA gets charged a percentage fee for every credit card payment made. We would like to avoid having to charge a "convenience fee" as other organizations do, so we ask that you consider using your checking account as opposed to your debit card for payments.
To do this, after choosing the amount you wish you pay, please select "bank transfer". From here you will be prompted to create a Dwolla account (our credit card payment processing website). You will be asked to provide your checking account routing number and account number. Dwolla will verify your account and you will be able to make payments directly from your checking account.
GLYSA shares your concerns about security when entering this information onto a website. Dwolla assures us that your information is secure and will never be shared. Unlike paper checks or credit card transactions, your financial information is not transmitted when making payments, limiting the threat of possible identity theft.
