“WHAT SPIRIT CAN DO"
When I began working on this book, I
already knew what an amazing accomplishment building the Chisago
Lakes Arena was. I also already knew many of the hard-working
people who coached the kids, raised the money, and physically built
the facility. What I did not know was that this spirit of
self-reliance and pride has a long-standing tradition in our hockey
It’s impossible to list every person
who contributed to a project of this magnitude. But it is
appropriate to collectively thank everyone who contributed either
with labor, money, or both, and recognize what an effort was made to
present this beautiful facility to the Chisago Lakes area without
using a cent of tax money.
I hope every reader is inspired in some
way to move from “it can’t be done” to “let’s do it” for the greater
good of the community.
