From Jana Roy
I have been involved with hockey in the valley for 25+ years. Team mom,
team manager, hockey player's wife, hockey player's mom of a boy and a
girl, scorekeeper, penalty box keeper, hockey player, off-ice official
etc. When I was approached about being a billet I had my reservations.
I knew about teenage hockey players, the amount of food they eat and how
they smell, what I didn't expect was how quickly these boys from all
over the country and world would steal your heart. I didn't expect to
become the "other mother" and how my kids would include them as their
"other brother". These players have become part of our family and the
community. They do not just visit but they contribute to this valley in
a huge and positive way. If you have reservations, don't, you become
part of a bigger family, the Wenatchee Wild family. It has been an
awesome 2 years and I look forward to 2010-2011.
