The Gatehouse Attends a Mighty Penguins Practice

On Tuesday March 22, 2016, the Gatehouse residents were treated to a visit to the new UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex to watch a VIP Training of the Pittsburgh Penguins by invitation from the Mighty Penguins, one of the Pittsburgh area’s hockey teams for disabled players.

Eleven of the current Gatehouse residents were in attendance as well as two staff persons.  We were able to watch both the Pittsburgh Penguins practice and play a scrimmage with each other and then a practice by the Mighty Penguins!  It was an exciting day and everyone had a great time!

Many thanks go out to Michelle Humphreys, President of the Mighty Penguins, for the invitation to attend!DSCN4394[1]DSCN4376[1]
