Goffstown Hockey Fundraiser and Preview

This is a first for me here, a preview of sorts. Okay, and a plea of sorts, for some help from the greater Goffstown Hockey community.

First, there is a Goffstown home game tomorrow at Sullivan Arena on the campus of St. Anselm College in Goffstown. The game starts at 4pm and will wind down by 6pm. The NHL All-Star skills stuff doesn’t start until 7pm, so there’s plenty of time to do both. Goffstown is hosting the Bow Falcons in the game. More on that later.

Second, is this plea for help. The Goffstown Hockey team does one major fundraiser each season, and that time is almost here. The Fundraiser is being held at the Alpine Club (175 Putnam Street) on February 5th beginning at 800pm. (Doors open at 630pm)

Feb. 5th Alpine Club

Goffstown Hockey Fundraiser

Now get this; for just $40 you get dinner (catered by Steak Out in Goffstown), a door prize, a tremendous comedy show, and whatever other fun you’ll have by being there. There will be a cash bar and raffle prizes as well. Speaking of raffle prizes, these items to be raffled off are being collected at the game against Bow tomorrow afternoon. There will be a collection box or collection area at the gate to get into the game tomorrow. Typically items or prizes being donated carry a value of $25-50 per item. Bring your items right to the game. Any help that any of you in the surrounding area might be able to contribute would be greatly appreciated. Tickets for the Comedy Night at the Alpine Club are also on sale at the game. So, if you can donate a prize, or purchase tickets to enjoy a fun night out without having to travel too far, Goffstown Hockey present, and certainly future, would be grateful without question.

Alright, I appreciate you staying with me on this so far. Back to the match up against the Bow Falcons. Bow finds themselves in 2nd place in the NHIAA Division II Standings with a phenomenal record thus far of 9-1-1. The Falcons boast 4 different players averaging 2 points (goals and assists are worth one point each) or more per game. They have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 71-22 in their 11 games played so far. The Bow Falcons are 6-0-1 against common opponents that Goffstown has played thus far this season. To say that Bow is a worthy opponent in this game that could be a cornerstone date on and off of the ice, is an understatement.

If you are in the area tomorrow, or on Friday the 5th, come on out with the Goffstown Hockey team and have some fun. We would love to see you at both events. Also, we thank you all in advance to any and all of you making contributions and/or assisting in making this a landmark event for the Goffstown Hockey program and the community that follows and supports them. Thank you again. See you at the rink!

God Bless the USA, Let’s Pray

I don’t need science to tell me that meditation repairs brain matter

Just bow your head and talk to Him, void of all the societal chatter


See, there are places all around you can find a spot filled in silence

Here, at least for now, my walk and talk with Jesus, is my license


Go to some quiet place, exhale, bow in reverence, and just pray

List every little thing you are thankful for if you need words to say


Ask with respect, Lord please give me direction in these areas of life

Better yet, kneel beside your bed together, praying, husband and wife


Then maybe look inside yourself, find the hidden, and set it free

Talk with Him about it, all of it, don’t open your eyes, and you’ll see


It’s okay to ask Him for help here, where else would you rather go

There’s always an answer whether we understand or not, God knows


Which came first the Power of the Almighty or the power of repentance

I know it changes hearts, much less the obvious, our countenance


Pray at length for our leaders instead of complaining about him or her

We all long for the way that it was, so bend a knee, that’s how we were


Bring your grievances to the bench of the Supreme Judge in humility

Don’t carry them another day, have faith, it’ll be better for you, and we


It’s heard across this great land less and less, God Bless the USA

Maybe we’re the problem, let’s find a place, bow our heads, let’s pray
