On Thursday, July 2, members of the Hopewell-Montgomery ice hockey team presented donations from their Salute to Service game to the heads of the Montgomery and Hopewell Valley veterans groups. Hopewell-Montgomery captains Ethan Block, Trent Demers, Henry McMahon, and Dan Seamon, along with head coach Jeff Radice, presented the checks to Chairwoman of the Montgomery Veterans Memorial Committee Dimitra Bairaktaris and President of the Hopewell Veterans Association Colonel Kenneth Baker.

The presentation took place in Hopewell Borough, and everyone involved made sure to wear a mask and keep socially distant.

The donations were collected during Hopewell’s annual Salute to Service game in January, in which members of the community gathered to honor the local veterans association and watch the hockey game. This year, Hopewell-Montgomery defeated the Pennington School 6-0.
