Melissa Nickerson Memorial Hockey Game Tonight At 7:30, Barrington Arena.Thursday, February 28th 2013
The Barrington Municipal High School Senior Girls Hockey team play the Melissa Nickerson Memorial Game tonight against teachers and staff of BMHS.
The game will be held at the Barrington Arena at 7:30.
Melissa was a member of the Sr. Girls Hockey Team, when she was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident in December of 2007.
This game, held every year, honours her memory.
Her mother, Dale Nickerson tells CJLS, she can't even begin to describe what this annual game means to her family.
"The fact that they care enough to do something in memory of her, is heartfelt. Anyone who has lost a child will agree, the one thing they are afraid of is they will be forgotten. The number of young people that are willing to keep her memory alive is awe inspiring. She was such a wonderful young person, so giving, so loving. Everyone called her a friend."
Nickerson says her daughter loved hockey, and attended a lot of Ice Dogs and Mariners games as well.
Proceeds from this game will go to the Melissa Nickerson Bursary Fund, and to the BMHS Senior Girls Hockey team.
