Hello to all HWBC members and Fans!
I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. It’s time to renew your membership. The dues are still $10.00. You can apply online through our website-www.whalersbc.org, or mail it to our PO Box 273, Hartford, CT. 06141.
I wanted to thank everyone who bought tickets for the Yard Goats game in July. We all had a great time, and it is always fun to visit with the Whalers alumni that attended the event. I also attended the NHL Booster Club Convention which was held in Tarrytown, NY, and was hosted by the New York Rangers Fan Club. The Club was also represented at Springfield’s “HockeyDay” which was held at the Big E. There is also some sad news that I must share. We lost two of our Whaler family members. Former player Terry Caffery, and Tommy Woodcock our former trainer for the Whalers have passed away. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and families of both men.
As the hockey season is fast approaching, we will be having our membership meeting on Zoom starting in September. We hope to have our annual Christmas party in December, and we expect to march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade in March of 2023. The week before that, we are also taking a trip to Long Island to see the Islanders take on the Red Wings. See Facebook and our website for more information on these events as well as our full club schedule.
Have a safe and happy rest of the summer and we will see you in September on Zoom.
Joanne Cortesa, President
Hartford Whalers Booster Club
