    The West Morris Rockets (U10G) had more fun thanthey could handle but no competitors they couldn'thandle at the The Fall Kick off Morris United STA

    Soccer Tournament. The Rockets went away from theweekend as well deserved champions conceding 0 goalsin 4 regulation games, scoring 4. The championshipgame was tight, and The Rockets did not connect a goal

    which led to a shootout where The Rockets scored 4 goalsfor the win!! They defeatedtheir four formidable oppo-nents, winning 4-2 in a nail biting shoot out in front of alarge crowd in the championship game. Great job,Rockets!

    Committee, made up of parents of graduat-ing seniors, has been meeting since March

    2014 to prepare for their June 2015 Event.

    ry environment for graduating seniors The

    Committee, like the ones before, will pro-

    vide an all-night celebration for every grad-

    uating senior. Every senior who walks in

    graduation is invited to attend. The under-

    taking comes with a heavy price tag, so the

    fundraising has begun. The group is sensi-

    tive to all the fundraising necessary in

    todays environment, so they have carefully

    selected events that serve the community

    and add value.The group is selling Vendor Discount

    Cards containing discount offers from over

    40 local businesses that offer foods and serv-

    ices. The Discount Card is popular and

    looked for year after year by residents. A
