District 5 March News
Annual Hockey Outing
The annual District 5 hockey outing was held on Saturday evening, March 7, 2020 at Mohegan Sun Arena in Wilkes-Barre Township, PA. The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins faced off against the Bridgeport Sound with 65 people attending through District 5. The game was a St. Patrick’s Day celebration with the Penguins dressed in green, Tux (their mascot) wearing a kilt, Irish dancers and Irish music playing. Attendees received a green Penguin’s hat, a value meal voucher from McDonald’s, a hot dog, chips and drink.
Excitement started just 11 seconds into the game as a fight ensued which delayed the game 30 minutes to repair the ice. The Penguins were victorious, 5-2. A special events subsidy was provided by the Home Office, as well as 3 Target gift cards won by Ann Marie Batyko, Ed Dolinish Jr., and Steven Luksa. Tubes of lip balm were also provided by the Home Office. Thanks for all they do to assist District 5.
