The late John Mariucci, the godfather of American hockey, was the kind of friend and supporter that comes along only once in a lifetime. “Maroosh” was committed to Confidence Learning Center and the people it serves.
One fall day several years ago, John said to the president and founder, Dick Endres: “Dick, I like the way you built the Center, with the campers in mind. But now you really are in need of a main lodge. Let's build one!” He then helped launch the Campaign for Mariucci Lodge. Although John is no longer with us today, his spirit and memory live on in the John Mariucci Lodge.
