MYHA Is Mass. Hockey's 'Program Of The Year'
In June, at the 41st Anniversary Massachusetts Hockey Awards Dinner in Plymouth, MYHA was named the "Program Of The Year." The award's notes read:
"Marblehead Youth Hockey Association (MYHA) celebrated the 50th anniversary of its unique partnership with Saint Lambert Youth Hockey Association of Saint Lambert, Quebec. The tradition, started by Donald "Bud" Orne in 1964, has grown from a friendly competition to a one-of-a-kind cultural exchange program. In November, teams from Saint Lambert come down and spend the weekend with a Marblehead family for a weekend. In February, Marblehead teams do the same up in Saint Lambert. The exchange exemplifies the youth hockey experience: playing and learning a fun sport with friends while instilling a love for the game."
MYHA is honored to have received this award at the culmination of its memorable 50th anniversary year of the Saint Lambert exchange.
