Paul Gilmartin, SR. – In 1984, Paul founded Valley Associates and would go on to build a number of hockey rinks in Massachusetts, including the Haverhill Forum. He scheduled games, formed leagues, and filled those rinks with thousands of boys and girls who had the opportunity to enjoy hockey, improve their skills, meet new friends, and learn the values of teamwork and fair play. Paul was also the founder of the Valley Jr. Warriors in the old EJHL who had a number of players move on to careers in college hockey, the NHL, and even compete in the Olympics. Paul’s involvement with the EJHL was invaluable to all the league administrators, players, and coaches involved.
