UNCASVILLE – The New England Black Wolves and FOX 61 teamed up to honor the contributions made by Connecticut’s military personnel, veterans, and first responders during the month of March.
The Black Wolves, New England's professional indoor lacrosse team, celebrated Hometown Heroes Day on March 3, during their 1:00 PM game against the Colorado Mammoth at Mohegan Sun Arena.
