They say our future lies within our youth. No truer words have been spoken, especially when it comes to the longevity of our club. Todays kids in youth group will carry on with traditional, and innovative ideas in the coming years of IHA. Just as in the past, our children have grown and taken the reins, so will our youth of this year. These kids, between ages 8 and 18 are the lifeblood of any organization.
Their energy, imagination, and drive continues to move this club forward.
Again may I add, this and all pages are constantly changing. Any youth in our association is welcome to place a picture, a poem or any other writings on this page.
