Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
It’s just two months into our 2016-2017 Transparent Laurier Football Fundraising Campaign and we are making great progress. Thank you very much to those of you that have generously donated and supported our program.
To those of you thinking of supporting us, it is important to know that all money comes directly to our football budget and helps us compete with the OUA’s and CIS’s top football programs.

Summer Varsity Football
The Cambridge Lions are now 5-2 this season with a tough 42-27 loss to the undefeated Niagara Spears two weeks ago, but then an impressive 43-6 win over the Sault Ste Marie Sabercats Saturday night. This week, the Lions host the Hamilton Ironmen Friday night at 8pm.
The Twin City Predators had a huge 78-0 win over the Oakville Titans two weeks ago and this weekend their game against the Brantford Bisons Friday evening was cancelled due to thunder and lightning in the area.
Help us expand our subscribers list and send me firstname.lastname@example.org the email address of anyone interested, please and thank you!
Until next week, go Hawks go!
