Lewiston-Auburn will have a new hockey team to cheer for this 2015-16 season when the L/A Fighting Spirit make the Androscogging Bank Colisee their home rink. The Fighting Spirit are primed for another successful season as a top team in the North American 3 Eastern Hockey League. The team boasts an impressive track record over the past three seasons, including 139 regular season victories and a national championship, two regular season championships, an Eastern Conference Championship and two league runner-up trophies. Returning players Mike Heffernan, David Fish and reigning League Goaltender of the Year Claes Endre will anchor this year’s lineup.
The Central Maine Medical Center Woman’s Hospital Association will sponsor a new fundraising event as part of this fall’s Dempsey Challenge. The Memory Mums Project was created in honor of the late Amanda Dempsey, mother of actor Patrick Dempsey, who founded the Patrick Dempsey Center for Hope & Healing. Amanda Dempsey had multiple bouts with cancer, living with the disease for many years and becoming an inspiration for others coping with cancer. She passed away in 2014.
