Strafford Recreational Sports Presents:"The Mother and Son Night of Fun"

Because we've had such success with the Father-Daughter dances in Spring, we've decided to roll out something for the rest of the family - not wanting to leave out all those moms and sons!

All you Strafford moms out there, grab your son(s), and enjoy a night out with snacks, fun minute-to-win-it games, and wild animals!

Yes, wild animals. Wildlife Encounters will provide a wildlife presentation and offer photo opportunities for those brave enough to get up close and personal with the cool critters they bring. For more information on this organization, see

When: Friday March 23, 2018, 6-9 pm at the Strafford School gymnasium.

Cost: $20 per family (one mom plus as many sons as you can fit in your minivan - all for $20!)

There will be a concession stand for drinks and snacks.  Tickets can be in advance on the Strafford Rec website or at the door.


Join us on Sunday, April 8th, 2018 at 9:00am for this fun, family-friendly road race along the shore of beautiful Bow Lake!

This scenic, part hilly, part flat course is great for serious competitors, casual joggers and walkers. Proceeds of this annual event support Strafford Rec Sports in providing recreation opportunities for children and families in our community and NH Thunder in providing cross country and track programming. 

Registration for the race and course map/details can be found online at Pre-registration is only $20 and race day registration is $25 starting at 8:00am. Sign up early to get a complimentary tee shirt! Register a family of 3 or more to receive our family discount! After the race, enjoy refreshments while we announce the overall prize winners, age category prize winners and walker prize winners along with the winners of three amazing gift baskets.
