At the AGM on February 27th, the Trustees presented a Special Award recognizing the heroic teamwork of 8 members of our Morris Rugby family:
KJ Feury (pictured with trustee Donna Waliky)
Their quick thinking and coordinated actions—including the use of an AED—during the Men’s playoff match last year at Pocono field saved the life of 28-year-old Montclair player, Tevita Bryce.
Please join the trustees in honoring these first responders from our community!
