Sadly, we must announce the recent passing of Josephine “Jo” Lawless. Jo was a life member of our club and served the club in numerous capacities over the years as Board Member, Judge and Referee and also served on several US Figure Skating committees over the years and held numerous official appointments over the years, in addition to serving the sport for many years in many capacities. She also served as our club historian. We will miss her greatly. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to Jo and all she did for our club and skaters over the years. May she rest in peace!
