To the Editor:
On June 2 and 3 at Town Farm, we will have the Fourth Annual Soccer Rhode Island Festival to benefit the Megan L. Cordeiro Scholarship Fund. The festival has been a big success for the past three years thanks to the support of the soccer community, the town of Tiverton, and Megan's many family members, teachers, coaches and friends.
This wonderful cause is in memory of Megan Lynn Cordeiro, who lost her battle to Acute Myeloid Leukemia in June 2008 at the age of 11. She was a 6th grader at Tiverton Middle School. Her grieving parents and sisters have decided to honor her memory by raising funds to award outstanding female Tiverton High School soccer players with an annual college scholarship. The plan is to continue awarding these generous scholarships to future female Tiverton High School soccer players.
Please plan to join us at the festival! Our goal is to turn this into a community event. So even if you don't have a loved one playing, come to Town Farm for some great food, fun, huge raffle (including a homemade quilt) and lots of soccer! The girl's teams play on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The boy's games are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The following games will feature Tiverton Teams:
