What’s up Railers fans!? Only 38 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.
Here’s our weekly event recap:
Saturday, September 8th
Rutland Youth Soccer – Trax got to play soccer with Rutland’s youth program on Saturday! It was an absolute blast!
Worcester Pride Parade – We had a huge presence at the Worcester Pride Parade! The Railers Raptor was part of the parade… we passed out Railers hats, scarves, and pocket schedules!
Coes Beach Family Day – This cool event had free paddle boat and kayak rides for children! Trax didn’t have a life jacket so we watched and cheered kids on from the beach!
PowWow Worcester Soccer Match – Tuesdays, Connor, and I participated in the PowWow Worcester Soccer Match… it was incredible. We are still recovering after all that running!
Tuesday, September 11th
Skate to Success – We started year two of Skate to Success on Tuesday! Burncoat and Thorndyke Elementary were the first two schools for the 2018-2019 Academic Year. Once again, over 100 fourth graders were bused into the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center for our flagship learn to skate program. Many of these kids experienced ice skating for the very first time which is amazing. I have to thank the Railers Staff/Interns, WBDC, our Booster Club, and the Worcester Blades for helping kick off Skate to Success 2.0.
