This Weekend in Charlestown: Youth Hockey Tournament, Tree Lighting and a Holiday Concert

Patch offers a few ideas for what to do in the area Dec. 8-9.

This year marks the 12th Annual Dan McGoff Christmas Classic Hockey Tournament hosted by Charlestown Youth Hockey. Come watch some talented teams compete all weekend long. The tournament will be held on Friday, Dec. 7 through Sunday, Dec. 9 at the the home of Charlestown Youth Hockey.

This tournament is held in honor and in memory of Dan McGoff who spent many years mentoring young hockey players, coaches and parents about the finer points of youth hockey

He exemplified how one person can make a big difference by giving back to an important nonprofit community-based youth program.

So come down and support your Charlestown teams and enjoy some of Edie’s Snack Shack fine cuisine or try some of the delicious desserts from the bake sale, and don’t forget to buy some raffles for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.
