Helping With Skating Camp at Lakewood Ice 8-16-17

I was asked by Skating Director Jacqui Palmore to help with the figure part of a skating camp at Lakewood Ice today! My son Joel, who is on break from Disney On Ice Frozen, tagged along and helped a bit too!

It was fun to share my passion for the sport and for compulsory figures with the young skaters who took part in the camp!

After the figures class, we stayed around for a bit of Rafael's jump class that was assisted by US Men's Champion Adam Rippon!

Hollywood Professional School Reunion! August 5, 2017

I am so proud to be a graduate of Hollywood Professional School and I was delighted to be able to attend the all class reunion on August 5, 2017. It was so good to see the people who went to such a unique and special school!
One of the original Mousekeeters, Sharon Baird, is shorter than me!....

Mr. Larry Stuppy was a tough vice-principal!

Elaine Ballace is the reason we keep having HPS Reunions....

Lorin O'Neil and I have led such similar lives but in different decades....Emerson Junior High, Hollywood Professional School, The Broadmoor, Colorado College, Iceland Paramount, and more! 

Sylvia Stoddard has kept HPS memories alive! She was also a skater.
