Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, January 23, 1971 - THE 1ETHBRIDCE HERALD - f Minor Hockey Week across Canada 600 boys, 34 teams form city leagues TVflNOR Hockey Week across Canada opens Saturday, Jan. 23, and Lethbridge joins with other centres over the country to bring home to parents and community leaders the importance of turning boyish enthusiasm into responsible citizenship channels. Being a good sport provides a basis for judging many of the everyday problems and partici-. pation by their sons in such healthful recreation should encourage parents to take a greater interest in boys' activities. Organized in this city in 1954 with approximately 100 boys signed in three classifications, the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association now has a membership of 600 with 34 teams in the Pee Wee, Bantam "B", Bantam "A" and Midget Leagues'; Most of these teams are sponsored by Lethbridge businessmen or organizations with 80 coaches and team managers giving their time voluntarily in this worthwhile effort for youth. An executive body of 18 men and. women is in over-all charge with Leo Har-rold as president. Mr. Harrold has headed the organization for six years, five of them being consecutive terms. While minor hockey is looked upon as a "family affair" there are only some 30 to 40 parents in this city who take an active part in the operation of the leagues. Encouragement from Moms and Dads is good but active participation by attend- INSURANCE # LIABILITY # BONDS # AUTO # FIRE R0SSITER AGENCIES ITO. ESTABLISHED 1911 lowar Floor 517 4th Avt. S. Phono 327-1541 ing games and taking some part in the actual supervision and direction is far better. The Minor Hockey Association is affiliated with the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association which seeks to gain increased interest and participation of boys and parents in organized, supervised hockey to help develop good citizens and the type of young men who can and will regain and retain for Canada world hockey supremacy. First president of the association in 1954 was Addie Donaldson who held that position for one and a half years. Games in the bantam, midget and juvenile leagues were played in the Arena and Civic Ice Centre. Following Mr. Donaldson to the top executive post were Alex Bennie, Bud Erick-son, Frank Newbert, Syd Hall, Joe Green, Leo Harrold, Art Campbell and again this year, Mr. Harrold. Funds for the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association are derived from registration fees, donations and the selling of raffle tickets - usually two raffles being held each season. So far this year one color TV set has been awarded and the second raffle will be conducted in conjunction with the annual banquet at the end of the sea' son. No grants are received from the city but the Parks and Recreation Department does supply ice time free, mainly at Adams Ice Centre, although some time is allotted at the Civic Ice Centre and the juvenile games are played at the arena. With the growth of the city and the increasing interest in minor hockey, provision of more ice time is a vital need to accommodate the growing number of teams in the various leagues. The slogan "Don't Send - Take Your Boy to the Arena' is very apt and all interested citizens are requested by the executive to get behind the as sociation in Lethbridge. Special events are planned One of the highlights of Minor Hockey Week in Lethbridge will take place Thursday, Jan. 28, at 8:30 p.m. when the Lethbridge Sugar Kings, at present holding down third spot in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, will tangle with the Lethbridge Warriors, a juvenile "A" team, in the Adams Ice Centre. On Tuesday, Jan. 26, at 8:15 to 9:30 p.m. at, Adams Ice Centre a "smockey" game has been lined up between members of the Lethbridge news media and a team made up from the executive and coaches of the LMHA. One feature which should draw a good crowd is the game arranged between LMHA Mothers and the Pee Wee Falcons - the 10-to-13 year olds. According to information "leaked" to The Herald some real surprises are in the offing during the contest which will be held Friday, Slogans Minor Hockey is a family affair. ? ? ?

Phono 328-5447 BOOST FOR THE BOYS - Jim Wallace, left, president of the Kinsmen Club of Lethbridge, presents a $500 cheque to Leo Harrold, president of the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association. Over the year the Kinsmen club has supported minor hockey in the city. Donations of $1,000 have been made to aid the cause of youth and hockey. The cheque for $500 was presented in conjunction with Minor Hockey Week. Individuals, groups, players honored Noted speakers at banquets Banquets to mark the conclusion of a season are usually held by all branches of sports organizations and the Lethbridge Minor Hockey Association holds one of the most interesting and successful. The objective is to honor those men and women who serve as volunteer workers for minor hockey and to recognize the service clubs and other public - spirited organizations and individuals who support the efforts of these people. It is also a time to award prizes and trophies to the hockey players themselves who have performed in an outstanding manner during the season. A highlight of each banquet has been the bringing in of an outstanding guest speaker with a pertinent message to the boys and their parents. The Lethbridge minor Hockey Association has had many distinguished guest speakers including such men as Father Athol Murray, founder of Notre Dame College at Wilcox, Sask.; Father David Bauer, former coach of Canada's National Hockey team which participated in world competition; Alderman Marion Law, formerly of Calgary but now residing in the United States; Jacques Plante, one of the outstanding goalies in the National Hockey League,; Doug Harvey and Terry Harper; and Dr. Sam Smith, president of the University of Lethbridge. Plante, .Harvey and Harper were all members of the Montreal Canadiens at the time they spoke in Lethbridge and were brought to this city through the courtesy of the officials of Sicks Lethbridge Brewery. Over the years attendance at these season windup affairs has grown from 125 to as many as 750 and continued growth is anticipated as interest increases.
