In a week already laden with tradition and meaning, the kickoff event for this week long celebration of community, families and football took place at the annual Ring Ceremony Dinner. The nationally recognized Thanksgiving Day Rivalry between the Red Rovers of Easton High School (PA) and the Stateliners from Phillipsburg (NJ) is this week.

“This dinner symbolizes the meaning of this game and its impact on our communities” said event organizer Art Kardos. “These rings and this special recognition dinner are totally paid for by the many sponsors and supporters who make all this possible”
