    Congratulations to Melissa. How nice to have her efforts recognized.

    Fever on Ice reaches middle school students in the Portland, Conn. and Hartford, Conn., areas. Participants are given homework assignments in addition to learning how to skate. Instruction, bus transport, ice skates, and ice time at the Koeppel Community Sports Center at Trinity College, are provided free of charge due to a two-year grant from the Hartford Board of Education and the State of Connecticut Department of Education. In March, the participants were showcased in an ice skating show alongside Olympians and elite skaters which generated funds for the McKinney Homeless Shelter in Hartford – a charity chosen by the students. Gregory is the first figure skater to receive this award.
    What a great honor! And her hubby ain't so bad either.

    I used to live in Adam's curls, but he cut them - so now I'm homeless. =o(

    What a wonderful honor for Melissa!
    An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”

    Congratulations to Melissa. Great work in giving back ... wonderful example that a life in skating never really ends when you find a way to give back the joy of your own skating journey.

    What a terrific award! Good for her!!!! Good to see these types of actions recognized as I think there are too many good deeds that go unnoticed/ignored. Too much bad/depressing news in the press these days...time to focus on some of the positive!
