Former teammates of Hodgdon High School Class of 2012 graduate Maya Gardiner have gathered the troops and want to use this opportunity to raise money for her. Maya was recently diagnosed with grade 3 Ovarian Cancer. The finances of this are tremendous so they are trying to do all they can to help.

If there is enough interest, there will be both women's and men's alumni teams. The women's game will be at 5:30 p.m. and the men's game at 7 p.m. on Saturday, December 27th.

There will be a small fee at the door and a donation bin that will all go towards the cause. Your support and attendance would be greatly appreciated.
