MARK YOUR CALENDARS!

The Greater Burlington Women's Forum invites you to a FREE film screening of 

the inspiring underdog story KEEPERS OF THE GAME at Burlington High School, Tuesday, November 29th at 6:30pm
 
The film follows the Salmon River High School girls lacrosse team in Fort Covington, NY, our neighbors to the west: 
 
Born in Akwesasne Mohawk Territory, lacrosse began as a sacred game, traditionally reserved for men. The Salmon River all-Native girls lacrosse team seeks to be the first Native women’s team to bring home a Section Championship. As the season goes on, the team is faced with increasing ambivalence in their own community and the girls must prove that the game of lacrosse is their rightful inheritance. With more than just the championship on the line, the girls fight to blaze a new path for the next generation of Native women, while still honoring their people’s tradition in a changing world. 
 
 
"Did you know that...":
  • Student athletes have an 11% higher graduation rate than non-athletes? 
  • 80% of successful businesswomen at Fortune 500 companies played sports as girls?
  • Student athletes are 4x more likely to go to college. 
  • Female athletes are more successful in math & science
  • It is estimated that 1 out of every 4 schools in the US won’t have schools sports by 2020.
  • November is National Native American Heritage Month http://nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov/
 
The film is free, open to the public and appropriate for older children. Run time is 90 minutes with a short panel discussion to follow. Bake sale hosted by BHS Girls Lacrosse Team starting at 6pm
