As the weather cools and the leaves fall, football is on everyone’s mind, including our local first responders. Police from local jurisdictions and Northumberland’s finest firefighters are gearing up for their annual flag football contest at the YMCA in Heathsville. This year, the Guns & Hoses Bowl is set for Saturday, November 1,1 at 12:00 noon.
This year’s event is sure to prove a close contest, as the firefighters will be coming to play with a vengeance after falling by just two points last year in a game that came down to the last play, nearly snapping the LEOs’ undefeated record. Small snacks and drinks will be available for purchase by the YMCA, who will also have volunteers set up to take questions about membership and other YMCA programs. The halftime performance will be brought on by members of the NHS Indian marching band.
Entry to the game is by donation, whatever you want to give. All donations go to the YMCA Guardian Program, which enables families who otherwise could not afford a membership.
