Hello FRHC Families,

 

Joe Purdue, only 19 years old, passed away this year from a rare form of an inoperable brain cancer called DIPG.  Joe has played football during all four years of high school and he also played JV hockey during his Sophomore and Junior year.  Joe’s teammates and coaches loved his leadership abilities as well as his kindness and love towards others.  His parents, JB and Lisa Purdue, would like to honor his memory by organizing the 1st annual #JoeStrong71 Birthday Bonfire Fundraiser scheduled for 6:00 on September 3rd at Mother of Sorrows.  They will be teaming up with St. Baldrick, the largest pediatric cancer fundraiser in the country, and the Franklin Regional VS Cancer Student Club.  This event will raise awareness and research funding in finding treatment options for pediatric cancer.  The Franklin Regional Hockey Club would like to support this event by contributing a basket to be raffled off.  Please consider donating…any amount is greatly appreciated!!!  We will use all monies donated towards lottery cards for our basket.  We would like to purchase everything for the basket no later than August 8th.  Please Venmo all donations to Carl Williams at @Carl-Williams-145 or mail donations to: 

5510 Parkview Court, Export, PA 15632

Thank you in advance for your support!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Payout will be as follows:
 $300 for the first
$500 at the half
$300 for the third
$1,000 for the final.

Please help and support our organization by participating. All donations can be made in cash to the Team Managers or by Venmo @April-knizner.

2022-23 Franklin Regional JR Panthers Registration

https://franklinregionalhockey.sportngin.com/register/form/260818337

 

Franklin Regional Hockey Family, another year is upon us and hopefully some tremendous hockey to watch. As we begin this season an important update for all to note.

The PIHL will be monitoring games more closely for negative fan participation especially in reference to the referees. A fan that is found to be yelling negative comments towards the referees will be removed from the game. If the refs are not sure of the individual they will look for the coaches to name the offender or the head coach will be removed. Please take note I have not mentioned profanity, this goes without saying. It will be any yelling of negative comments that will result in removal.

 

To that note we ask:

 

 All those who attend, please be respectful of the refs and the other team. We at Franklin want to demonstrate what it means to be a tremendous and proud fan of Franklin Hockey for our players and student body. Let us cheer for them positively and powerfully so that others notice.  Most importantly let's be the example for our players in our display of showmanship.

Sincerely,

David Lavrich

Franklin Regional Hockey President
