Falcons Fever: Join Fellow Alumni and Families For a Fun Afternoon of Hockey Action March 1

Posted January 3, 2009

prefalcons09.gifSpringfield Falcons hockey is everything the game should be—fast, hard-hitting, fun, and actually affordable, unlike the NHL. Join fellow alumni for an afternoon of American Hockey League action at the MassMutual Center on Sunday, March 1, as the Falcons host the Manchester Monarchs. Game time is 4:00 p.m.

Tickets cost $10. Western New England College alumni, faculty, staff, students, and families can enjoy a free skate (participants must provide their own skates) from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. T-shirts will be given to all alumni who attend the pre-game reception, which will be held at the MassMutual Center’s Club Lounge from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. There will also be meet-and-greet photo opportunities with the Golden Bear and Screech mascots, Golden Bear toss-outs from the College’s hockey team, and on-ice fun competitions between alumni during intermissions. See a photo album of last year's Alumni Night at the Falcons.

In addition, President Anthony S. Caprio will drop the first puck, and the game will include performances from the College’s Choral Program and the ROTC Color Guard. Phone orders will be accepted until the day prior to the game. Payments made with an order form must be received two days prior to game if mailed. For more information, contact Kristina Oleksak at 413-782-1557.
