Operation Beachhead started the winter sports season calendar off with the first of several scheduled activities on Wednesday, October 23rd. This year The Township of Old Bridge is providing the venue for this year’s skating/sled events at the Old Bridge Township John Piccolo Arena. The Township hosted the members from the Lyons VA in Lyons NJ. The group of young men and women from the Iraq/Afghanistan war, enjoyed a day of ice-skating & sled hockey, followed by a luncheon sponsored by Old Bridge Township.
This year a donation of two sit-down sleds for our disabled individuals, who would otherwise not be able to enjoy a day on the ice, made the sled/skating possible. The most generous donation was a gift from the Lt. Dennis W. Zilinski II Foundation and Memorial Fund.
The 2013-2014 Winter Events Schedule will include ice-skating, sled hockey, skiing, and snowboarding.
