Pine City Youth Hockey (PCYH) and Pine City Area Pickleball (PCAP) believe that people are paying more attention to their physical and mental health, and that a community needs to provide affordable recreational and leisure opportunities for businesses, organizations, and residents of all ages to enjoy. That is why PCYH and PCAP are on a volunteer and fundraising mission to improve the Hilltop Recreation Area.
We need your support. Please donate so we can provide safe, accessible, and quality recreation & leisure facilities for us all to enjoy.
