Over the weekend locals gathered together for a few games of good old-fashioned broomball at the rink in Foster. Every winter, locals plan tournaments amongst themselves to get together to for some winter fun and it’s all in the name of a good cause. Each tournament that is organized (there are a few that usually take place throughout January and February) is a fundraiser for a specific organization, person, institution. Liane Flynn, a teacher at Heroes’ Memorial Elementary School in Cowansville, organized the first broomball tournament of the year on the weekend and all the money that was raised is going towards the ski program at the school. It was a fantastic weekend for a fantastic cause. Eight teams took part in the tournament, held on Friday and Saturday and they went head to head for a spot in the finals. For the tournament, there were two divisions. The top two teams in each division played against one another for the ‘A’ final and the second place team in each division went head to head for the ‘B’ final.
