FEATURED EVENT: Mass. Army National Guard to Play Benefit Hockey Game at Somerville Rink
With just one month to go before they deploy to Afghanistan, a benefit hockey game hits the ice tonight to support families of the 182nd Regiment.
"Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone announced that the Somerville Veterans Memorial Ice Rink will host the first annual Massachusetts Army National Guard (MA ARNG) Military Winter Classic, “Settling the Old Rivalry Between the Infantry and Artillery,” hockey game on Monday, Feb. 28 from 8 to 10 p.m.
While admission is free of charge, proceeds from a 50/50 raffle and additional donations will support families of the 1st Battalion of the 182nd Infantry Regiment, which will be deploying to Afghanistan in March. While admission is free, there is a suggested donation of $5.
The MA ARNG is one of the three oldest active military organizations in the world. Mayor Curtatone will join MA ARNG Battalion Commander, Colonel Stewart, and MA ARNG employees for the game. All members of the public are invited.”--From the City of Somerville
