A big thank you to all who came out and supported both the police and fire teams last night. The Police team won. The big winner was the New Day Foundation and all who will be helped due to the generous donations from the fans in the stands.

We are getting ready for the big game to start. Doors open at 6:45 at the Onyx. Lots of raffle items to pick from. Hope to see you there.
