Woodland spirit finally propelled the Hawks to a win against Seymour Wednesday. Before the game, a war of the classes reverberated through the walls of the Woodland gym.
Black and gold warriors at Woodland Regional High School gathered Wednesday morning to psyche up for the game in the loudest way possible – with a screaming contest between the sophomore and senior finalists.
After battling for 10 days, the seniors emerged triumphant at the pep rally proceeding Wednesday night’s Thanksgiving football game.
BEACON FALLS – Veterans Day isn’t just another day off from school, said Bruce Carlson, commander of the Beacon Falls Legion Post.
“We’re trying to bring the community back involved with our ceremonies and to let the kids know a little history. We start out with the youngest age in the cub scouts and try to get as much participation as possible with the high school,” Carlson said.
Boy Scout troop 104 participated in the ceremony. Chris Zmuda, a member of the troop, played taps on his father’s trumpet.
He said that the ceremony made him think about what the day means. “I come out of my way to come here. I’d probably be home doing homework or something, but I came here to really think and meet these people,” Zmuda said.
The day was especially emotional for Paul Drabicki, whose father, Chester “Benny” Drabicki, a WWII veteran passed away a few weeks ago.
