We had a great time at the 1st Annual LTHC Golf Outing out at Carriage Greens in Darien. Thanks to everyone at the course for the great golf and great food. Thanks to all who supported this outing and were instrumental in making the success that it was.
Congratulations to LTHC's Logan Fennema on his signing with the St. Louis Jr. Blues. This is a great opportunity for Logan, while we will miss him on the ice for LT, we are very proud of this great accomplishment and hope for the best for him in St. Louis. This shows what hard work and perseverance can do for someone with lofty goals. This is what most hockey players look to achieve and is now a reality for one of LT's very own. Way to go #91!!!!! You will be missed!
