Somersworth NH boy scouts to serve as color guard for a Bruins Game

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Realty Group

welcome to New Hampshire sign

The more and more I write my blogs, luckily for me, the more and more I have been noticed.  As most of you may know by now, I am very involved in youth sports, in particular, youth hockey.  My son Micheal is a member of the Somersworth Berwick Black Bears youth hockey team at the Mites level.  For any of you that know about youth hockey, you will know what a Mite is, between the ages of 5 and 8.  I am also the head coach for the Mites team, and am a member of the Board of Directors for (SBYHA) Somersworth Berwick Youth Hockey.

I often write about my community involvement, my plans with the team, and our fund-raising efforts.  It seems that residents of Somersworth New Hampshire are now reading my blogs!  (YEAH ME!)  I was contacted last week by the supervisor of the recreation department for the city of Somersworth asking for a little bit of help.  You see, not only do I blog, and am heavily involved with SBYH, but I am the webmaster for the hockey programs website!  The supervisor Darryl asked if I could announce the fact that the Somersworth New Hampshire cub scouts and boy scouts will be serving as color guard for the Boston Bruins final, regular season, home game.  The recreation department is offering transportation to the game, and a ticket for entry, all for only $50!  I told Darryl that I would be honored to do so and that I would do whatever he needed to help him out.

Boston Bruins

....Come watch the Bruins take on division rival Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, April 5th for an evening face-off at 7:00 p.m. Members of the Somersworth Boy Scouts/Cub Scouts will serve as color guard during the playing of the National Anthem prior to the game. This is the Bruins final game of the regular season and will serve as "Fan Appreciation Day". Bus leaves at 4:00 p.m. from the Flanagan Center. $50 per person includes ticket and transportation. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Tickets can be purchased at the Somersworth Recreation Department in City Hall. For more information, call 692-9508.

So, there you go Darryl, I hope this was a good enough plug for you!

Debbie - Thanks for stopping in and reading.  My son is not a member of the scouts, but I was contacted by the rec. department and asked to post this event because of my blog and my community involment.  We may go to the game with them and more than likely he will decide he wants to join then.  (one more thing to do!)

HI Bill:  That's pretty cool that your son gets to be involved in the Bruins game!  I'm a die-hard Red Wing fan, but it's still a nice honor for your son.  Take lots of pictures and hope the Bruins win that game.

Ed - thanks for stopoing in.  My son is not a member of the scouts, but I have been asked to post this info. for the scouts and the rec. department.  I have to also admit, I was a Red Wing fan, all the way up unti they traded away Darrin McCarty!  I think the Bruins have a great kid now that reminds me of Dariin, his name is Milan Lucic.  You should check him out.  If you are a true hockey fan, you'll appreciate his work.

McCarty is BACK!  He's with the Grand Rapids Griffins (where I live, in fact I tried to get my husband to go see the game yesterday) and will be back with the Red Wings I think next week Monday - him and Draper are my 2 favorites.  I've heard of Milan but I honestly don't have access to many Bruins games.

Bill  My son played youth hockey in Dover, many years ago, and we never missed a game.  I have wonderful memories of those hockey days.  How exciting for those kids to be at the Bruins game!  I think it is great that you are so involved!
