An amazing moment at Windham High School

on Friday February 17 when Gunnery Sgt. Bernie Ruchin who is also a BDFM Board Member was honored by the Windham Hockey Team. It took place at the High School’s 2nd Annual Warrior Week in which BDFM is the recipient of the students’ weeklong fundraising efforts. Bernie made instant connections with the hockey team last year who ultimately won the 2016 State Hockey Title.

Windham High School Alumni and Hockey Players, Chad Desautels and Jack Crowley presented Bernie with the Championship Ring at a pep really in front of the entire school and faculty. It was a heartwarming moment, one that both the hockey team and Bernie will not forget. Bernie made such an impression on the students that he was asked to present last year’s graduation commencement speech. Thank you to everyone who participated in Warrior Week and to BDFM Board Member, Scott Baetz for all his volunteer efforts and representing BDFM during the weeklong Warrior Week.
