A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Season ticketholders treated to a glorious day at Eisenhower Park with autographs, music, games and much more

    
Season ticketholders who traveled to Eisenhower Park on Sunday afternoon to meet Garth Snow, Ted Nolan and the entire Islanders team couldn't have asked for a better day. With the sun shining and the temperature hovering in the 70s all afternoon, the Islanders' most loyal fans were the honored guests at their well deserved Season Ticketholder Party.

At 1 pm, the entire team, led by Snow and Nolan were introduced by Master of Ceremonies Steve Mears, to a thunderous applause from the thousand-plus strong crowd, fully decked out in Islanders apparel.

"It's great being out here today," said Nolan. "You couldn't have asked for better weather, and we're just happy to get to meet the fans in a setting like this."

After the players were introduced, along with Sparky and the Ice Girls, who executed their famous t-shirt toss, fans lined up at the various stations situated throughout Field 6 for some autographs and one-on-ones with their favorite players.

"This is such a good family event," said Dennis Sheridan, who bought season tickets this year thanks to the $10 per game Kids' Season Pass. "The kids get to see what the players are like in person. The players are all family guys, and it's exciting for the kids to meet them."

Fresh off last night's exciting 4-3 overtime winner against New Jersey, which put the Islanders in second place in the Atlantic Division and in a tie for fourth in the Eastern Conference, the players, along with the fans, had smiles on their faces all day.

"I'm really proud to be part of a team that puts on events for the fans like nowhere else," said captain Bill Guerin. "You can never reach out to the fans enough, because they're the ones who make our jobs even more exciting."

Those who traveled to Eisenhower Park were treated to some upbeat tunes from the lively band, NYC Swing, led by Steve Shane. And for the youngsters on the grounds, the Family Fan Fest was out in full force with inflatables.

Fans were seen wearing and carrying souvenirs from Islanders dolls to the popular firefighter-themed hats from last night's game. If you didn't get a chance to catch yesterday's game at the Coliseum to receive a hat, then be sure to grab a law enforcement-themed Islanders hat this Saturday when the Islanders take on the Carolina Hurricanes on Law Enforcement Appreciation Night.

"This is a terrific community event," said Keith Strejlau, who also purchased Kids' Season Passes along with his own season ticket. "You don't see too many organizations and players who are as gracious as the Islanders."

The Islanders resume skating this week, and return to game action on Saturday against the Carolina Hurricanes on Law Enforcement Appreciation Night.
