Community Express (July 26-Aug 2)

By Paul Harris


Hello Railers HC! It’s that time again for the Community Express! We are one week closer to the start of the season. 73 days left…but who’s counting!? I just finished up my second month here…time is flying! In these two months, we’ve completed 56 community events. That’s incredible!


Thursday, July 27th Treasure Valley Scout Reservation

We arrived in Rutland at Treasure Valley for the third time this summer last Thursday. It was raining but we still were able to surprise the cub scouts indoors.


Sunday, July 30th Charlton Blueberry Festival

Sunday was amazing. Our first stop was in Charlton for their annual Blueberry Festival. Trax and I had a great time meeting new people. We passed out goodies and took photos. We plan on appearing again next year!

Sunday, July 30th Connecticut Sun Game

We drove to Mohegan Sun Arena to help celebrate Blaze’s birthday. Blaze is the mascot for the Connecticut Sun of the WNBA. We were joined by Storm, the mascot of our AHL affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. Trax got to walk around the arena and interact with thousands of fans. He also got to go on the court to throw t shirts. It was a busy day. I’ve already started to plan Trax’s birthday! You won’t want to miss it!

Tuesday, August 1st Treasure Valley Scout Reservation

Our last summer camp visit at Treasure Valley was a huge success. We drove the Railers Raptor down to their cabin where they ate lunch and took tons of photos. We can’t wait to return next summer!
