Woonsocket Call - - Sports -

The Providence Grid­iron Club, which has been in ex­is­tence since 1946 has an­nounced its up­com­ing slate for this com­ing fall, and for their an­nual awards night in April.

The Grid­iron Club, which pro­motes foot­ball at all lev­els in the state of Rhode Is­land, has also an­nounced a re­newed re­la­tion­ship with the Youth Foot­ball Leagues in the state. Youth play­ers, coaches and par­ents will now be a part of the PGC events.

The Grid­iron Club spon­sors six events in the fall and one in the spring. That amounts to six din­ners and one brunch, which honor play­ers and coaches, and for­mer play­ers, coaches and ad­min­is­tra­tors, who have played big roles in the sport of foot­ball in Rhode Is­land.

The PGC is spread­ing the news to their cur­rent and for­mer mem­bers that they would like more par­tic­i­pa­tion and sup­port for their pro­gram. Mem­ber­ship is $ 150 per year and pays for six din­ners. The brunch is sep­a­rate and costs $ 25. In­di­vid­ual din­ners run be­tween $ 25 and $ 40.

A re­cent Steak Fry event pro­vided a chance for mem­bers to get to­gether and en­joy, not only a good meal, but the ca­ma­raderie of for­mer team­mates and op­po­nents. In the fu­ture it is hoped that other events of this na­ture will take place.

The up­com­ing slate in­clude; High School Lead­er­ship Night, Wed­nes­day, Oct. 11; Hall of Fame Brunch, Sun­day, Nov. 5; Hall of Fame Night, Wed­nes­day, No. 8; Su­per Bowl Night, Wed­nes­day, Nov. 29; Rhode Is­land High School MVP Night, Wed­nes­day, Dec. 13; and, the An­nual Awards Night on Wed­nes­day, April 4, 2018.

All the din­ners will be held at the Quon­set ' O' Club at 200 Lt. Brown Road, North Kingstown.

They will all start at 7 pm. The Hall of Fame Brunch will be held at the Rhode Is­land Coun­try Club on 150 Ny­att Road, Bar­ring­ton. Start time for the Brunch is 10: 30.
