NRCM staff and members had a great night at the ball game July 1st! Despite some fog and drizzle, more than 75 of us sat together in the Hadlock Field stadium to watch a double-header between the Portland Sea Dogs and the New Britain Rock Cats. The gathering was one of our “50 Events for 50 Years,” celebrating NRCM’s 50th anniversary.
NRCM Executive Director Brownie Carson threw out the first pitch of the game, having warmed up during the week playing catch with NRCM Advocacy Director Pete Didisheim in the State Planning Office parking lot adjacent to NRCM’s Augusta office. This video captures some of the flavor of the evening — with children, long-time NRCM members, new supporters and staff sharing an evening out at the ball game.
