Community Express (June 7-June 21)

By Paul Harris

Hello everyone,

It has been a while since the last update. Last week, our entire front office traveled to Las Vegas for the ECHL League Meetings. I had the time of my life. Being the new guy, it was a great way to bond with the staff. For more information about our trip, check out Tom Matthews’ post recapping our adventure HERE. Quick shout-out to our interns Jackie, Nick, and Cody for all their help executing community events while we were gone.

Trax and I have done 22 community events since I started on June 1st. I’ve met so many amazing people along the way thus far. I love heading out and engaging with the Greater Worcester community. And the summer is far from over! I can’t wait for our upcoming events. Stay tuned…

Let’s recap a busy two weeks of community events!
