    Lynn McCarthy, Local Program Coordinator for the West Springfield Special Olympics, organizes the local sports programs for local Special Needs children and adults. Lynn started a West Side Special Olympics soccer team when it was realized that the special needs children and especially her daughter Sarah, had no local options of a team for them to participate in with so many sports programs around us in town. This was back in 1998, and since then, West Springfield Special Olympics has grown and now serves about 60 children and adults, mostly from West Springfield but we also serve surrounding towns.
     
    Lynn says, "All year, we offer various sports - in the fall we have 2 Flag Football teams and a Cheerleading squad, followed by 4 basketball teams in the winter, and 3 softball teams in the summer. We must fundraise for our own teams – buses to events when needed, uniforms, jackets, equipment and various other items. Some of the coaches have also been coaching close to 10 plus years with West Side Special Olympics - they are great mentors and leaders to the teams!" Head Coaches are: Leslie Girand, Ginny McMullan, Peachy Valentino, Jon Norton, Jim Sheridan, Kristina Albano, Sarah Kennedy. Assistant coaches are: Jack Twaddle, Nick Fenney, Jason Paine, Kathryn Manley, Alysha Lewis, Jim Uszynski, Chris Aberdale, Assistant Coach Stephani Peabody, and 1st Assistant Coach Shelly Fortier.

    Spend an afternoon of contemporary and Celtic rock-influenced fiddle and string music with The Moxie Strings. Diana Ladio, Alison Lynn and Fritz McGirr’s polished, high-energy shows and unique sound are redefining strings’ role in contemporary music. The Moxie Strings compose the majority of their instrumental pieces and arrange melodies from many traditions, resulting in a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching melodies and foot-stomping rhythms.

    The Moxie Strings will perform on Sunday, December 3 at 3:00 pm at the ICC’s Irish House Restaurant and Trinity Pub at 429 Morgan Road, West Springfield, MA. Doors open at 1:30 pm. Tickets are limited for this intimate event. Advance purchase is highly recommended. Cost is $15 for ICC Patrons, $18 for general, $20 at the door. Tickets are available online or by calling the ICC at 413-333-4951. When purchasing tickets, please give a name for your party and indicate how many people will be seated in your party. The Irish House Restaurant’s menu and bar will be available before and during the show. Learn more about the show!
