Football Team Hits the Road for Saturday Football: The Rockets' third game of the season is against St. Peter-Marian on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The game will be played at Anna Maria College in Paxton. Head coach Jeff Cormier said the team will be ready to roll against the tough Worcester squad. “They know we have a real, real good football team in St. Peter-Marian, and they know we have to dial in,” Cormier said. “If we don’t dial in, we’re going to be in a lot of trouble.”
Two-Act Play “Color-Blind” Presented in Auburn: “Color-Blind,” an original play written and directed by Worcester playwright Moise Robert, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. at 22 Faith Ave. at the Auburn Faith Baptist Church. The play “depicts the subtle, yet profound, dilemmas that contemporary multiracial couples face when introducing their relationships to families with entrenched racial prejudices,” according to the play’s description. “Color-Blind,” which is ironically titled, shows how this age-old problem still lingers in modern societies where not everyone is desensitized to color.
