Blue Knights® Intl LEMC, Nebraska Chapter II came together for a night of entertainment and fundraising on November 18! The 2016 Annual Lancer’s Hockey Guns and Hoses night highlighted the Blue Knights® through a variety of activities. Corey Zimmer presented the colors as only the Blue Knights® can, entering the ice on a trike and circling the arena before taking center ice for the National Anthem. The Lancers honored our Heaven I member, Stan Herrick, by having Stan’s wife, son, and daughter on the ice to drop the ceremonial game puck. Then throughout the first period numerous announcements were made letting the fans know the story of the Blue Knights®!
During the first intermission, Team Deuce took the ice for a donut eating contest! The Lancers fielded Team Orange from a selection of fans. The race was tight but Team Deuce pulled if off in the end with a time of 9 minutes 32 seconds. Yes folks you heard it here, 6 Law Enforcement Officers took over 9 minutes to eat 6 donuts!!! In an after contest interview President Elect/Treasurer Bobby Clark stated, “those donuts were days old and dry!”
In the end Nebraska II raised $847.00 to be used for Fallen Officers and the their Families, Disabled Veterans, and Special Needs Children!
We would like to Thank the Lancers Hockey Organization for their continued support of the Blue Knights®!
