Free Basketball Clinics Sponsored by District Attorney Thomas Quinn

On Saturday, October 28th at the Fall River Boys and Girls Club, 803 Bedford Street in Fall River, DA Tom Quinn will be conducting a free basketball clinic for all Fall River youth Grades 2-8.  This is a chance to get out on the basketball court with some friends and learn some good techniques and drills from some great local players and coaches from Durfee High School Boys and Girls Varsity teams, the Boys and Girls Club staff, and members of the District Attorney’s Office.
Children Grades 2-4 will go from 10am-11am.
Children Grades 5-8 will go from 11am-12pm.
These clinics are totally free, sponsored by District Attorney Tom Quinn, the Fall River Boys and Girls Club and staffed by the BMC Durfee HS Boys and Girls Basketball Team and Coaches. 
All of these clinics are designed for boys and girls, beginners to all stars.  This is a great way to get introduced to the great game of basketball during a low-key, fun-filled clinic. Each player will receive a free giveaway after the clinic and also have the ability to sign up for one of the local youth leagues from Fall River.

Donate Your Coat(s) to the United Neighbors Coat Drive

Are you interested in providing someone with a way to stay warm this winter? Do you have any extra coats laying around that you'd like to get rid of? If you've answered yes to both questions, United Neighbors Fall River has the perfect opportunity for you. With your help, we've begun to collect coats for our annual coat drive. Our hope is that nobody in our community (and beyond) will be stuck without a warm jacket.
