Marblehead VFW Danbury Football Banquet

By John Kozak

The 69th annual Marblehead VFW-Danbury Football banquet was held Thursday evening November 13 at the Danbury St. Paul Lutheran social hall with fifteen varsity players attending with their fathers.  Pastor Chris Young delivered the invocation prior to the meal, which was prepared by the Lutheran Ladies and served by the Junior Varsity football team.  

Afterwards Danbury Athletic Director, Drew Davie, welcomed everyone and praised those who cooked the delicious dinner.  Head Coach Bryan Dudash went into detail about the dedication and hard work of the Laker football team in which the 3-7 record does not indicate that we were out-played in every game.  We were competitive in most of the games through good weather and bad and we have a starting point for next years returning players.  

Marblehead VFW Commander, Bob Peroni, emphasized the importance of not only playing football, but also other sports as a way of using teamwork in their future endeavors, no matter what career you choose in life.  Commander Peroni and Dave Groene distributed to the seniors their football portrait and the trophies to the award-winning athletes.  And a special thank-you must be given to Charlie Scott and St. Paul Lutheran church for collaborating with the Marblehead VFW to continue this long-standing tradition.
