*Media Advisory* Maynard Fire and Police to Host Charity Softball Game

MAYNARD — Fire Chief Anthony Stowers and Police Chief Mark Dubois would like to invite the community to attend the departments’ first charity softball game between firefighters and police officers this month.

The friendly competition will put some of the fire and police departments’ new hires up against each other to see who can run the most bases. Winners will get bragging rights and a coveted trophy.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to build comradery, not just within our department, but between departments,” Chief Stowers said. “Plus, the proceeds are going to support a very worthy organization.”

“We are always up for a little rivalry between friends,” added Chief Dubois. “We hope the community will come out to support both departments as we play ball!”

WHAT: 

Admission: $5 for those 13 and above. Children 12 and under are free

Mary’s Catering will provide hamburgers, hot dogs and refreshments.

All proceeds from the event to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Assabet Valley.

The Vice President of the Boys and Girls Club Jim Fairweather will serve as the emcee for the game. The organization will also provide a bounce house for children. Other activities like face painting will be available as well.

Attendees should also be on the lookout for Sparky the Fire Dog and be sure to stop by the Fire Department’s new fire engine and the Police Department’s new cruiser.
