Lynne initially became involved in hockey as a ‘hockey mom’ when her son David started playing Atom hockey in Oakbank, MB. This involvement continued through the years by volunteering with her son’s team and as well at the Oakbank Arena.
When her husband Brad became the Referee in Chief of the Eastman region, she was always the person working in the background to ensure everything ran smoothly. She has played a major role in the region’s officiating program and considers it a major compliment when the referees in the region have referred to her as ‘Mrs. Referee in Chief’.
Lynne has also been the website administrator for Eastman for the last 3 1/2 years and is currently also the Midget statistician for the region. When she is not at home working at a computer for hockey she can be found travelling the region watching hockey games with her husband.
Hockey Manitoba and the Eastman region congratulate Lynne Richardson as the January 2012 Volunteer of the Month.
The Volunteer of the Month award is presented by Awards & More, official partner of Hockey Manitoba.
