ESSENTIA DULUTH HERITAGE CENTER ANNOUNCES UNPRECEDENTED GIFT FROM TODD & SUSAN JOHNSON

ESSENTIA DULUTH HERITAGE CENTER ANNOUNCES UNPRECEDENTED GIFT FROM TODD & SUSAN JOHNSON TO HELP SUSTAIN THEM THROUGH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC Duluth, MN — When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March of 2020, the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center faced a seemingly impossible financial challenge. For over a decade the Center had prided itself on running like a business and now, like so many other local businesses, the Center was facing a dire financial future. The Essentia Duluth Heritage Center was created to inspire and empower Northland youth to become the best that they can be. And it was in this moment of uncertainty that a northland family stepped up to show leadership and community support in an unprecedented way. Their gift spanning 16 months will carry the operations of the Center through the current pandemic. The Johnsons have been significant community supporters for over three decades. In addition to their entrepreneurial efforts, they have also been remarkably generous in financially supporting several nonprofit enterprises in our area. They have long been impressed by the community’s creation and support of the Heritage Center. They endorse the Center's mission of citizenship, personal responsibility and community. Still, it came as a surprise when Pat Francisco, he Center’s Foundation Chair, received a call from Todd Johnson. “He called me out of the blue,” Pat said, “and asked about our organization’s current stress level. I told him, honestly, that it was on yellow and trending to red.” That was all Todd needed to hear. “Maybe I can help,” Todd said. In a moment of nationwide instability and uncertainty, a family in our community has once again stepped up to support the work of the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center, continuing the proud legacy of Jerry DeMeo and the late Dick Loraas. “The Essentia Duluth Heritage Center is a community treasure,” said Todd Johnson. “Like so many other businesses impacted by this time, they had expenses that needed to be paid. We thought it was important that someone from our community — someone who has been blessed with the resources to help — step in to do so and help them keep their crucial mission going.” “It’s so important that people with the resources to do so give back to the community we all call home,” said Todd. “We can be a force for good and show vital organizations that, when the chips are down and the future is not certain, there are people who will step forward and help” “The Johnsons saw a community need and they took action,” said Pat. “They acted on their love of this community and its care for our children. “We sincerely thank the Johnsons for their charitable leadership at such a critical time.” The Johnsons, in their crucial support of the work of the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center, are a real-life example of the words of Franklin Roosevelt when he said “we cannot always build a future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future." About The Essentia Duluth Heritage Center Completed in 2008, the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center is a facility which provides an environment that inspires and promotes a healthy lifestyle through diverse, quality opportunities with special emphasis on youth sports and the programs of the Boys and Girls Club. About the Duluth Heritage Sports Center Foundation The Duluth Heritage Sports Center Foundation exists to support the mission of the Essentia Duluth Heritage Center and to promote the values that encourage personal responsibility and citizenship.

EDHC 10-year Anniversary Teamwork Celebration

Little Wild Learn to Play Program

The Minnesota Wild, in partnership with Hy-Vee, Minnesota Hockey, CCM, Pure Hockey, NHL, and NHLPA, are pleased to announce the return of the Little Wild Learn to Play program for its eighth season. The 2021 Little Wild Learn to Play program will be available for 60 kids at 20 locations across the State of Hockey but that number is subject to change based on guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health.

The Little Wild program is intended for first-time boys and girls hockey players ages 5-8. Eligible participants must be between the ages of 5-8 as of September 1, 2021. The program is intended for children who have not participated in organized youth hockey programs before. Children who have previously participated in Little Wild are not eligible to participate in the 2021 Little Wild program. Those in violation of this rule will not be allowed to participate and their registration fee will not be refunded.

All participants will receive four one-hour on-ice sessions led by the Minnesota Hockey ADM team and a full set of CCM hockey equipment. Kids who do not have skating experience are strongly encouraged to take skating lessons prior to their first Little Wild on-ice session.

Registration opens May 24th at 10:00 a.m.
