Molly Davies Advances to Midwestern Figure Skating Sectional Championships
Molly Davies, a sixteen-year-old member of the Traverse City Figure Skating Club, has qualified to compete at the Midwestern Sectionals in Bloomington, Minnesota November 14-18 after placing third overall at the Eastern Great Lakes Regional Figure Skating Championships in Antioch, Tennessee. Davies, a junior at Traverse City Central High School, competes at the Novice level, the third highest of five qualifying levels in United States Figure Skating.

“Molly has worked so hard to put herself in this position,” said Coach Laurent Masse. “It really is such a great achievement, one that so many skaters strive for across the country."

Congratulations Molly! We are cheering you on!

Murray Howe Takes the Stage During National Writers Series Event Sponsored by Centre Ice
Join Centre Ice Arena as we sponsor the National Writers Series event A Conversation with Murray Howe - A Son's Poignant Remembrance at the City Opera House on Sunday, November 12 at 7 pm. Tickets are: $15.50 Reserved Seats, $25.50 Premium Reserved Seats, $5.50 Student Tickets (plus ticket service fees).

The youngest of Gordie Howe's three sons, Murray practices radiology as the head of Sports Medicine Imaging at Toledo Radiological Associates in Ohio. Unlike his brothers, he didn't inherit his father's athleticism. He aspired to his dad in other ways. In Nine Lessons , the author considers the true significance of greatness, stepping back from the hockey all-star to pay tribute to the ordinary goodness of an extraordinary man. That man just so happened to be "Mr. Hockey."

Guest Host: Ron Jolly

Join us for an uplifting, inspirational evening the whole family will love!
