More About Harlem Lacrosse Players (PHOTO)

Speaking of great pics, here’s one about the Harlem lacrosse players with a note from a friend:

This past weekend, 35 students from Frederick Douglass Academy in Harlem spent the weekend in Concord, MA for the third annual exchange program. The bus was met Friday night by host families who took in two players each. Saturday's activities compromised a lacrosse skills clinic in the morning, a visit of the Old Manse and Old North Bridge in the afternoon, leaf raking after the tour, and a barbecue at night. The next day, the Harlem and Concord lacrosse players were joined by 200 other players from 12 towns throughout the state of MA to participate in a lacrosse tournament. Highlight of the day was an inspirational talk given by Frederick Douglas Opie. All proceeds from the tournament benefited HLL. Overall, a great weekend! I can state from first-hand experience that the host families got more from the weekend than the players from Harlem.
