MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR A SPECIAL SEASON OPENING GAME AND CHARITY EVENT
The first WMC Boy’s Lacrosse Varsity game of the season is set for Tuesday, 4/4 at 6 pm at WMC vs. Gill St. Bernard’s.
We are using this game as an opportunity to come together as a community to raise funds for two local charities (the Long Valley First Aid Squad and Sarah’s Fight for HOPE Foundation), and to support two local lacrosse families (the Collins and the Fullers) who are going through challenging times.
