Upcoming Schulz exhibit explores Peanuts and Hockey

Just noticed this on the Schulz Museum web site that there is an exhibit coming up called “Face-Off: Charles M. Schulz and Hockey” (scroll down a bit) and runs from June 28 through October 2, 2006.

Growing up in Minnesota, Charles Schulz developed a love for ice hockey?a sport that he continued to play for the rest of his life. Face-Off focuses on Snoopy?s Senior World Hockey Tournament, which Schulz founded in 1975 and which has been played every year since at his Redwood Empire Ice Arena. Schulz enjoyed supporting National Hockey League teams and players, and he was awarded the Lester Patrick Trophy in 1981 for ?outstanding service to hockey in the United States.? This trophy, as well as a silver hockey stick presented to Schulz for his many contributions, will also be on display.
