FFCS girls basketball to honor Papierniak

FONDA – The Fonda-Fultonville girls basketball team will honor Ron Papierniak at its home game Friday against Ichabod Crane.

“Ron was instrumental in running the Fonda-Fultonville biddy basketball program years ago when I first started coaching at Fonda,” Fonda-Fultonville coach Wendi Waters said in a news release. “He was beloved in the community and his death has affected many.”

All proceeds from the 50-50 raffle will be donated to the foundation set up in Papierniak’s name.

His wife, Annmarie, and daughter, Megan, will be in attendance to accept the donation.

The varsity game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
