How did the year go by so quickly? Happens every year doesn't it? It seems as though i just packed that tree away and here we are, ready to celebrate Christmas in 2 days. My dad always told me the older I got, the faster time would go by. Only for me, its kind of a wierd thing. Last year seems so long ago, yet at the same time, the year flew by. Go figure...
I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that made 2016 a good year here at Amelia Park. We are so grateful for all of our users, the families and businesses that walk through our doors year after year. We're also so thankful for our sponsors and the people that give freely of their time and money to help with our operational needs and programming. Westfield is a unique community and it's great to be a part of this city.
Onward to 2017. There will be plenty of things in store for us here at the arena. Some facility upgrades, a new audio system, new rental skates and a few new events for hockey families and the community. We'll also continue with some old traditions like the Fire and Ice Tournament this January, the New England Invitational Sled Hockey Tournament in April and the Kevin Major Tournament in August. In January I'll discuss our vision for 2017 more in depth and some of the ideas we have in store. One thing is for certain, we can't do this alone and we want your feedback and ideas on how to make this facility more relevant and useful for all of you! So stay tuned and put those thinking caps on. We love hearing from all of you, so don't be shy!
I hope you all can take time to celebrate your families this holiday season. Here's to your health and a prosperous New Year!
