Jean LeBlanc: A look back in 2014 at our three favorite sports stories


BERLIN-- During Berlin High School Field Hockey Pre-season, the members of the field hockey team were able to participate in an event that was more than just playing field hockey.  The team along with 17 other NH high school field hockey teams participated in a fund raiser for Cancer at Manchester Memorial High School.  The members of the Berlin High School team organized a car was and with the generosity of the citizens of Berlin the team was able to donate $500 in memory of Corrine Daniels Bergeron. The letter below is from the organizers of the event: 

Good Morning, Christine and I wanted to personally say thank you for all your support during the jamboree on Saturday! We are so thankful for your support to the program. During the opening ceremonies we remembered and recognized 147 loved ones! Your participation in the event is allowing us to give a check for: $3186.30 to NCCC!! With the Pre-jamboree event  that was held at Milly's Tavern on Aug 26th and the $500 donation from Berlin's car wash we have a grand total of $6544.30 being donated on behalf of Playing for a Purpose Jamboree.

Thank you again so much for your participation We are excited to begin planning the 5th Annual Playing for a Purpose Jamboree and we want you to have an amazing experience with us. Thank you from Rebecca & Christine Tournament organizers.
