Nick recently passed from this life into the next on January 22nd. Nick's parents live in my neighborhood and we have gotten to know one another through the passing of both our sons. My son Jamie left this earth on October 20th, with injuries suffered from a car accident in Nashville, Tn.
It was said in my grief support group that bereaved people like to talk to other bereaved people and I would have to say that is true.
I am excited about this golf outing to raise money for The Nick Belanger Assist Fund. By taking the bull by the horns, Laurie and Van are moving forward in a positive way to carry on their son's legacy as a carrying, giving (assisting) human being.
In hockey, players are awarded an “assist” when they pass the puck to a teammate who then scores a goal.
Nick had a gift for the timely “assist,” supporting teammates both on and off the ice. Whether it be a kind smile, a boost to others’ spirit, a hug on a troubling day, or putting others’ needs before his own, Nick was willing to help friends or strangers at a moment’s notice. He desired to ease everyone’s burden, checking in routinely with those he loved in person or over the phone to ensure they were okay.
The golf outing begins at 8:30, on June 15th, with a Continental Breakfast and the shot gun start is at 10:00. Lunch will be served at the turn and dinner at 4:30.

Already The Nick Belanger Assist Fund has given funds to help in T Ball in the Pittsfield Township Recreation Program, to under privileged kids who otherwise would not be able to play T Ball this summer. Plans are underway to help out high achieving students that want to take Calculus and yet can not afford the calculators.
