NH Fisher Cats Announce Northeast Delta Dental as New Stadium Naming Rights Partner

submitted by Matt Leite The New Hampshire Fisher Cats, Double- A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays, and Northeast Delta Dental announced a long- term partnership that includes the stadium naming rights for Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. “We are pleased to expand our partnership with Tom Raffio and Northeast Delta Dental,” said the owner of DSF Sports, Art Solomon. “The relationship between these two organizations has developed wonderfully, thanks to our common focus on service and community. We are proud to know that the Fisher Cats will now play ball at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium.”

Concord-based Northeast Delta Dental continues a longstanding relationship with the Fisher Cats, having been the team’s presenting partner for the 2009 and 2010 seasons, the title sponsor of the 2009 and 2010 Granite State Baseball Dinners, and for the 2008 and upcoming 2011 Eastern League All-Star Games. “This sponsorship will enhance our

already strong partnership with the New Hampshire Fisher Cats,” said Tom Raffio, president and CEO of Northeast Delta Dental. “Stadium naming will strengthen brand awareness, and provides a number of marketing strategies for Northeast Delta Dental to reach out to the public with important reminders about the importance of good oral health practices and the relationships of oral health to overall health.”

Northeast Delta Dental administers the dental benefits of over 725,000 people in Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont. It offers dental insurance programs for organizations of all sizes, and individuals with no access to employer-sponsored dental insurance, to encourage the preventive procedures that are important to oral health. Northeast Delta Dental is well known for the excellence of its customer service. Having been recognized nationally as “One of the 25 Best Small Companies to Work for in America,” and as “One of the 10 Best Companies to Work For in New Hampshire,” each for five consecutive years, one of Northeast Delta Dental’s most recent awards was the national 2010 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Business Excellence in Workplace Flexibility. In addition to supporting many community organizations in its three states, it awards grants to oral health programs through the Northeast Delta Dental Foundation to increase the impact of its oral health mission. “It has been amazing to see what the

Fisher Cats and Northeast Delta Dental have been able to accomplish as partners over the years and this is another step forward together,” said Fisher Cats President Rick Brenner. “We are excited about the future and are happy to call Northeast Delta Dental Stadium our home.” Through the annual Granite State Baseball Dinner, the Fisher Cats and Northeast Delta Dental have partnered to raise over $316,000 for the Children’s

Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock, the Ted Williams Museum, and The Fisher Cats Foundation in the last two years. On May 7, 2004, the initial

groundbreaking took place for the stadium that has become a destination for fans and families to enjoy the Fisher Cats Entertainment Experience. Since it first opened on April 7, 2005, Northeast Delta Dental Stadium has welcomed 2,103,005 fans through the gates for Fisher Cats regular season and playoff games as one of the Eastern League’s top drawing teams during that time.

As the centerpiece for the community, Northeast Delta Dental Stadium also hosts events in addition to the Fisher Cats’ 71- game home schedule, including NHIAA Baseball State Championships, high school and collegiate games, concerts, fundraisers, and private events. The team’s unconditional commitment to providing its guests with a unique brand of affordable family entertainment has allowed the Fisher Cats to remain New Hampshire’s premier outdoor entertainment destination and best entertainment value. The Fisher Cats have recently been recognized by Minor League Baseball with the prestigious Larry MacPhail Award in 2010 as the nation’s best team in promotional effort and community involvement. In 2009, Baseball America presented the Fisher Cats with the coveted Bob Freitas Award, recognizing the club as an outstanding franchise that has achieved long-term success in Minor League Baseball. The New Hampshire Business Review has, for three consecutive years, recognized the club with the Best of Business Award as the “Best Sporting Venue to Take a Client.”

Northeast Delta Dental assumes the naming rights of what was formerly Stadium from the Merchants Automotive Group, which spent the last five seasons and all but one year of the ballpark’s existence as the Fisher Cats’ stadium-naming rights partner. “The Singer Family and the entire staff at Merchants Automotive Group are extremely proud to have been the original naming rights sponsor at Stadium,” said Stephen Singer, President of Merchants Automotive Group. “Our relationship with Art Solomon, Rick Brenner, and the Fisher Cats team could not have been better and certainly exceeded our high expectations. We are looking forward to continuing this relationship on several levels, as both the Fisher Cats and Merchants Automotive Group strive to improve the quality of life in our community.” The 2011 All-Star Season will bring a record 29 scheduled Atlas Fireworks Shows, the Northeast Delta Dental Eastern League All-Star Game, 19 premium giveaway items and the return of Ollie the Bat Dog to Northeast Delta Dental Stadium. The Fisher Cats will also debut uniforms featuring the new team colors of red, white, and blue in the first year of the naming rights partnership with Northeast Delta Dental. New Hampshire Fisher Cats Full- and Half-Season Tickets for the 2011 All-Star Season at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium, including Opening Day 2011 on April 7 and the 2011 Northeast Delta Dental Eastern League All-Star Game on July 13, are on sale now.

National School Counseling Week

submitted by Mary Cummings, LMS National School Counseling Week will be celebrated on

February 7-11. It is sponsored by the American School Counseling Association. The focus of the week is to bring attention to the unique contribution of professional school counselors within the U.S. school system and to bring awareness of how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact that school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

More than 28,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s activities. They will be calling attention to the benefits that school counselors bring to students by focusing on positive ways to enhance their personal/social,

educational and career development. School counselors work together with teachers and parents to provide an educational system where students can realize their potential and set realistic goals for themselves. Professional school counselors are certified, experienced educators, and have a master’s degree in guidance and counseling. They are an integral part of the total educational program.

During this week, Litchfield Middle School will be celebrating by

having morning announcements about character, contributing to the “Appreciation” bulletin board, and the teachers will be enjoying a continental breakfast put together by Guidance Counselor Mary Cummings with the support of the Litchfield Middle School PTO, chaired by parent Mary Piana.
