  To the Light house Lacrosse Foundation Members,

I wanted to extend my sincere appreciation of being honored with the Lighthouse Women of the Year Award.  The award plate is gorgeous and it will be become a special memorabilia in my life.  I have been fortunate and blessed to be a Board member of one of the best foundations that exists for youth.  The professionalism, integrity, and inclusiveness Lighthouse provides is first class. The teamwork and enthusiasm every member brings is contagious. Finally, the philosophy, vision, and opportunity Lighthouse brings to serve our community is a blessing.  Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be a part of this great organization.  The community outreach lighthouse has provided to give more kids and schools opportunities to fund, grow, and learn the game of lacrosse is benefiting our community in positive ways directly.  

Thank you again for this award. I recognize that there are many people that play a part in the role of lacrosse in our community, and to me that partnership is what is most important and rewarding.  

Yours in Lacrosse,
Mindy McCord
