In 1982, the City of Mentor opened its doors to the award winning Mentor Civic Arena. By 1988, the Mentor Figure Skating Club received their official sanction from the United States Figure Skating Association. Over the years, the club has seen many faces come and go, but two in particular, have been the cornerstone of what the MFSC is today.

Linda and Henry Brown joined the MFSC in 1985, when their daughter Leslie began skating. Since that time, they have contributed countless hours of hard work and dedication to our club. Linda has been the MFSC delegate to Cleveland Council for 16 years. She was a board member of the MFSC from 1987 to 1997, during which time she served as President in 1994, Treasurer for 3 years and Secretary. In 1989, Linda co-chaired along with Linda Silokowski, our very first ice show. Her ongoing dedication continued as she was chairman of Tri-States Championships in 1991and 1997, of Cleveland Invitational Championships in 1994, and our annual Sunshine Competition in 1992 and 1993. Linda has been our elected delegate to represent our club at several National Governing Council Meetings for the USFSA. Although Henry never held an “official” position with the club, he was always known as her “shadow” so to speak. Henry dedicated thousands of volunteer hours wherever he was needed. Erection of parade floats, stage and scenery construction for the ice shows, accounting tabulating for our annual competitions, and fundraising, to name a few. If Linda was involved, Henry was always right behind her, offering up his services to whatever needed to be done.

In recognition of your past, present, and future contributions, the MFSC will present an award every year at the annual Mentor Sunshine Competition to the Champion of the Juvenile Ladies Freestyle Event as tribute. On behalf of the MFSC, we would like to say “THANK YOU” and may your unselfish dedication be an inspiration to all current and future members.
