The Charles Regional Medical Center hosts a “Thankful Thursday” community service event every week. Southern Maryland Sabres 10U Black’s Bessie Nguyen participated this past week as part of a community service project for her school nomination of the Carson Scholarship. 

Nguyen coordinated the collection and drop off, decorated a sign, and had her teammates sign it to show appreciation to all the staff at the medical center. 

“My experience was so fun! I did this not only for a scholarship at school,but to thank the frontline workers at the hospital for all they do. I’d like to give a huge thanks for my Southern Maryland Sabres. Without their donations or supports, this wouldn’t be possible!” said Bessie.

The goal of the Sabres Youth Hockey Program is to promote the development and competitiveness of hockey players by providing the most possible ice touches and highest quality of instruction available. The Sabres will field teams for all age groups depending on the number of players and skill levels available. A determination will be made after player evaluations (tryouts). It is very important that the player and parent understand and accept the time commitment of the travel program, and that they are expected to make the travel team a priority. Parents and players should be prepared to accept this level of commitment.
