Founded in 2002, The Methuen Fun Hockey League enjoyed its best season in 2012-2013. The Nevins Memorial Library is an active partner in the league's "Skate & Read" program. Nevins Memorial Library hosted the preseason "Skate & Read" party in January, where the players could chat with librarians, choose a book or two, and enjoy refreshments, including cake shaped like a hockey rink. During the season, the library also hosted a showing of a famous hockey movie, which attracted 25 players and their parents.
Methuen fire fighters and Sheehan's Towing of Methuen also made generous donations to "Skate & Read." MFHL coach Jon Anderson, CEO of Secret Weapon Stick Wax, arranged for former Boston Bruins great Rick Middleton to skate with Methuen youngsters and talk about "Skate & Read". MFHL had a great group of teen mentors this year: Brianna Fotino, Methuen High; Connor Donahue, Pinkerton Academy; Madison Fotino, Methuen High; Liam Atkinson, New England Academy; Jovanni Geha, Methuen High; Sean McDonough, Essex Aggie HS; Casey Pedro, Central Catholic, and Evan Leclerc, St. John's Prep. Their coaching and role model behavior was exemplary.
39 fun leaguers between the ages of 4 and 14 read 107 age appropriate books from the "Skate & Read" list in just eight weeks!
