Anyone who has ever attended a hockey game can tell you that when the cool air hits your face and the crowd begins to roar as the payers take the ice… that is all you need to get your heart pounding with excitement and ready for the experience of a lifetime. The annual NHS Goals for Giving Event expels all of these emotions and more.
As the angelic voice of Courtney Dininny’s National Anthem rang through the rink, team members and spectators alike prepared for the exhilaration of the game. Every Year the passionate players of the NHS Blues gear up to take down the Flyers alumni team once and for all. With the recruitment of a few Flyers alumni to the Blues team, the chances for a win were at their peak! Unfortunately Brian Propp, Ray Allison, Kjell Samuelsson, Todd Fedoruk, and Larry Goodenough working with the NHS Blues were not enough for an entire team of their peers.
In the midst of the game’s excitement, over 20 gift baskets were raffled off, autographed memorabilia silent auctions, and our favorite for the kids “Chuck a Puck”, providing entertainment both inside and outside the rink.
The mission of the NHS Foundation is to raise awareness and financial support for the children and adults supported by NHS such as mental health, addictive diseases, education, juvenile justice, foster care and permanency, autism, intellectual and developmental disabilities and to provide NHS staff with the tools and resources necessary to better serve and maximize the potential of all individuals in NHS programs.
Over the past (11) eleven years, the NHS Human Services Foundation Goals for Giving Hockey Benefit has raised approximately $506,000 to support the programs and services of NHS. This year, the goal was to raise $125,000, and through the support of the individuals whom so effortlessly give, that goal was reached and exceeded to upwards of $145,000.
This year’s National School Lunch Week was an outstanding Success. Lintons Food Service Staff energized their students with delicious flavorful meals, lots of enthusiasm, and wide eye giveaways. Encouraging healthy choices in the cafeteria is at the forefront of our minds. Here at Lintons we nourish healthy students, use local produce whenever possible and incorporate encouraging promotional events.
As part of our NSLW Promotion, each school received prizes to entice the students to make the right choices when it comes to lunch. Lintons staff was thrilled to present the Barnes and Noble NOOKs to the winning students! While not every student could receive a NOOK, each student walked away a winner in nutrition.
National School Lunch Week is a weeklong celebration of the school lunch program. Research has proven, children who participate in the school lunch program receive superior nutrition compared to those who do not participate.
Lintons holds great value in providing our students with fresh and nutrient rich foods every day. It is with great excitement that we celebrate national School Lunch Week with continued nutritious lunch options, as well as fun and educational giveaways!
This year the theme for National School Lunch Week is “School Lunch Snapshot”! It’s about sharing the best, real images of today’s school lunch—fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, milk, and happy students.
