Community Express -8/29

by Paul Harris

What’s up Railers fans!? Only 52 days until Railers Hockey returns to the DCU Center on October 20th! Who’s excited!? Welcome back to another Community Express Community Recap! We’ve been staying busy here…things are only going to pick up as we get closer to October! If you see us out and about, be sure to take a photo and tag @Trax_RailersHC on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook! We’ll share our favorites. Special thanks to our summer series Presenting Sponsor People’s United Bank as well as our Participating Sponsors Feeley Dental & Associates, Polar Beverages, CBS, Reliant Medical Group,  & Erika Sullivan Realty Group.

Pow Wow Worcester, our local arts festival, is starting up again this week! If you remember from the last two years, Pow Wow Worcester, over the course of 10 days, paints dozens of murals throughout the city. As of today, you can already see some wall structures, like behind the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center, getting primed for painting! We’re happy to sponsor Pow Wow Worcester again this year. We went to the Pow Wow Sponsor Reception last week and got to tag the back of the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center, as you can see in the video recap! It was a lot of fun… stay tuned for more Pow Wow Worcester info…we’ll have a presence at some of their upcoming events!

We dropped off 60 school-supply-stuffed backpacks at the Friendly House last week. They were super grateful! These will all go to students in need. We are looking forward to helping them out again soon with their Thanksgiving Food Drive!

Here’s our weekly event recap:

Dean Park Movie Night

Trax was invited to Dean Park in Shrewsbury last week to kick off a fun night of festivities. Trax mostly hung-out in the Despicable Me tent, taking photos with families. The rain held off just long enough for everyone to enjoy their night!

Holden Days

One of the largest events we attend each summer, once again, did not disappoint. There were thousands in attendance, including Trax! We had our huge shootout inflatable present along with cornhole and our prize wheel…I think we gave out over 500 prizes! Thanks to all that stopped by our tent…we’ll see you next year, Holden Days!

Elmwood St Elementary

School is back in session so that means Trax is going to start getting awfully busy! First up this academic year is Elmwood St Elementary School in Millbury. They had an ice cream social on one of the hottest days of the year – how convenient! Connor Haynes and I got to head over there with Trax and interact with the families. With school resuming…that only means hockey’s right around the corner!

Don’t miss out! Here is where we’ll be this upcoming week!

Thursday – South Grafton Elem – 6:30pm

Friday – Ecotarium – 10-3 – Inflatable/Prize Wheel – Trax at 1pm
