SHRINE MAPLE SUGAR BOWL NEWS
for July 19-26, 2014

Hanover, NH—Next week seventy-two of the finest high school football players from New Hampshire and Vermont will begin practice for the 61st Annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl. It will be a week when strong legs run so that some day weak legs may walk. The summer classic will be played on Saturday, August 2nd on Dartmouth’s Memorial Field.

Starting Saturday, July 26, double sessions will be the order of the day for both teams. Head Coaches David Jackson of Merrimack Valley High School and Mike Williams from BFAA- Fairfax have both stressed the importance to their players of reporting in good physical condition. The two teams will be headquartered at Castleton State College for seven days before moving here for the Bowl Game.

On Sunday, July 27 the two teams will travel to Springfield, MA to visit the Shrine Hospital for Children and there in the “smile of a small child” they will learn the real meaning of Shrine football.

On Game Day, there will be a spectacular parade starting at 12 noon featuring units from eight Shrine Centers from throughout New England and Eastern Canada, as well an all star high school band made up of over 110 musicians from high schools in both state. Kick-off for the Shrine Bowl is scheduled for 5:30 p.m., a first ever evening game, for the Shrine Bowl.

Between the parade and football game, the town of Hanover will come alive with entertainment and games. It will be a day for the entire family.

The Bowl Game is sponsored by the Shrine Centers in NH and VT, Bektash of Concord, NH; Mt. Sinai of Montpelier, VT; and Cairo of Rutland, VT.

General Admission tickets for the Bowl Game are on sale at outlets throughout New Hampshire and Vermont for $10.00. On Game Day tickets will be priced at $15.00. Tickets are also available through the Shrine Football Office, P.O. Box 820, Lebanon, NH 03766 or by calling (603) 448 - 1042.

Tickets can also be purchased by going on line at the game’s website at shrinemaplesugarbowl.com and clicking on 2014 Game

In 1922 the Shriners founded the first Shriners Hospitals for Children in Shreveport, Louisiana. Since then this unique philanthropy has grown to an extraordinary health system with 22 facilities in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Shriners Hospitals for Children® is a health care system of 22 hospitals dedicated to improving the lives of children by providing pediatric specialty care, innovative research, and outstanding teaching programs for medical professionals. Children up to age 18 with orthopaedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate are eligible for care and receive all services in a family-centered environment, regardless of the patients’ ability to pay.

Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, relief and truth with nearly 200 temples (chapters) in seven countries and thousands of clubs around the world.

It is the mission of Shriners International to:

  • Be the premier fraternal organization for men of good character

The best known symbol of Shrinedom is the distinctive red fez Fez that Shriners wear at official functions. Because Shriners are men who enjoy life, fun is a large part of the Shrine and the activities that help support the Shrine's philanthropy. Most Shrine Temples sponsor Shrine Clubs and special units, such as the motor corps, band or clown units and many other units of interest. They share in the camaraderie, deep friendships and good fellowship that are all part of being a Shriner.
