*** Feb 2021 Tournament Update ***


Unfortunately we have to once again postpone Damian’s Memorial Basketball Tournament from next month to later in 2021 due to the continuing COVID situation.  We are hoping to be able to have the event on either November 6th or November 13th, 2021.   


On a more positive note, we are happy to report that due to the generosity of so many people, we will be able to award the Damian C. Mele Memorial Scholarship for the first time to a 2021 graduating Senior at Lehighton High School.  https://www.tnonline.com/20201202/scholarship-to-memorialize-lehighton-grad/ 


We look forward to holding the Tournament in November so that we can all be together and to remember and honor Damian and raise additional funds for the Scholarship! 


*** Reminder – no need to re-register if you have already done so ***
