Council #81 conducted the local Free Throw Championship on February 22nd.  23 participants competed at the Special Olympics Gym in Marlborough and got trophies from Council #81.  District Deputy Russ Lindquist was also on hand to award District Champion medals.  Our District Champions now advance to the Regional Finals on March 14th at Nichols College in Dudley – and, who knows, perhaps the State Finals!  Congratulations to all of our athletes who competed, and good luck to our Champions!

Knights volunteer to make the Special Olympics Polar Plunge a big success.

On February 15, 2020 six Knights from Council #81 staffed the registration table and merchandise table, helping Special Olympics of Mass. (SOMA) conduct their annual Polar Plunge.

Lt. Tom Bryant (L) and Chief David Giorgi (R) take the plunge in 9 degree weather

Knights go undercover wearing SOMA T-shirts. (L-R) Tim Gruttner, DGK Neil Cronin, Paul Cote, GK Mike Tremblay, Rich Pulice (SOMA State Program Liason), and Kevin Armstrong. It was hard work, staying indoors all day, warm and dry, but somebody had to do it.

SOMA runs this event in four locations around the Commonwealth during the February School Vacation week.  The Central Mass event is the biggest and had over 75 “plungers” many from police, fire and public safety organizations who had sponsorship for fundraising.
