Join the Columbia Hokies on August 31 for one last Fireflies game before the season ends. We will be collecting school supplies for Killian Elementary. They are requesting hand sanitizer, Clorox wipes, Kleenex, underwear size 5-12, bandaids, pencils, and marbled composition books. Look for Hokies from our service committee outside of the ballpark to drop off these supplies, then meet us at the bar in the outfield!

The Rowland’s are hosting the Columbia Hokies for the VT vs ECU game at their home on the lake! Plan to arrive anytime after noon to have some fun on the water before the game. The Rowland’s have three big screen TVs and kickoff is at 3:30PM. PLUS enjoy a post-game sunset cruise! Please BYOB and bring a side or dessert to share. Their home is family friendly, so bring along the kiddos too! The address will be emailed to the folks who RSVP, so please email ColaHokies@gmail.com if you’ll be attending! Go Hokies!
