The 2018 ​Dennison Dribble

Held April 8 at New Bedford High School, and generously presented by Bristol County Savings Bank, the Dennison Dribble combines pledge-supported dribble laps with a variety of other round ball contests.

New to the Dribble this year was a civic challenge pitting the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick against the Prince Henry Society in what will become an annual competition. The Friendy Sons won this year's matchup, 43-29, taking possession of the "Friendly Henrys" trophy, which will remain with the Sons until next year's game.

Also popular in 2018 was a game between New Bedford Police officers and Dennison Memorial Community Center members. Showing no mercy, the police team pulled off a narrow victory in the final seconds of the game. The "Legends" game again delighted onlookers.

 The Dennison Founders Award recognizes the vision of its founding “mothers,” and constitutes a return to its roots. Women in our community have provided leadership when and where it is most needed to make our community a better, stronger and more nurturing place to live.
