Volunteers are Needed

I am looking for 2-3 couples to help sell 50/50 tickets at the Varsity football game this Friday night, September 26th. It is Reeths-Puffers homecoming game, so it will be very busy and Rob and i cannot do the ticket sales alone!

All proceeds go towards the varsity Hockey program, and this is one of the only fundraisers we have to help keep costs down.

PLEASE email or call me and let me know you can help!
Thank you

Hockey families please see the below information. Contact Deb Eskew for additional info.


Hello Mr. Sikkenga, I have an exchange student from Finland that urgently needs a host family. He has been playing Ice Hockey since he was seven and plays regularly on a team. With school starting next week, it is urgent for him to see his dream come true to attend school in America.
Can you help this young man? Can you or someone on your team host him for the school year at Reeths-Puffer?
I am available by phone at 231 828-4809 or email.
Currently I have 5 exchange students attending Reeths-Puffer. I need a Hockey family for Miika Korhonen (Finland).
