For the past 11 years the Lyle “Chummy McDonald memorial hockey tournament has been a major fundraiser to support local youth Hockey. Unfortunately it is necessary to cancel the event again this year.


In 2010 Chummy’s family partnered with the M&M Area Community Foundation to establish a memorial fund which helps to offset registration costs for new players, or current players in need of financial assistance within the M&M Thunder Hockey Association.  The Fund also provides a full scholarship for a week at Michigan Tech’s Summer Hockey Camp for one Thunder student-athlete each year.  To date, the Fund has awarded 148 scholarships totaling over $24,000.


M&M Thunder Hockey relies on community donations to support youth hockey players.  Contributions may be mailed to the MMACF at 1110 10th Avenue, Suite L-1, Menominee, MI  49858, or made online at
