We certainly want to join the committee for Saturday nightâ€™s hockey gala in extending its gratitude to Britney Rand, whose exceptional efforts in leading the event are to be commended. Rand has been a superlative booster of the Winthrop High hockey program.
And we must thank former Winthrop resident Chris Wayland, general manager of Channel 7 and Channel 56 in Boston, for his outstanding efforts in lending his professional assistance to the production of the film tribute to Mike Eruzione.
Wayland is a former hockey standout who played the game in high school, college, and in the professional ranks. Wayland said he had been inspired by Eruzioneâ€™s story. The film tribute was perfectly orchestrated and added another special touch to the evening.
