Picture Day is Sunday, October 4, 2015
See the calendar for more info.
Butch Ducharme passed away suddenly on Friday September 11th, leaving behind his wife and three daughters. He was a loving husband to his wife Mona and a proud father to Olivia, Madeline and Gabrielle.
Butch touched countless lives through everything he did in the community - always with a smile on his face.
He meant so much to the children and families of AYSO and made a huge impact in many lives over his 16 years of service as a coach, referee and Commissioner of Region 55. We are truly heartbroken.
The vigil will be Monday 9/21/15 at 7pm, and the Memorial Service will be Tuesday 9/22/15 at 10:30am with a reception to follow at the church hall. Services will be held at St. Bonaventure Church located at 16400 Springdale Street, Huntington Beach, Ca 92649
In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made through this account to help give back to his wife and children the love we all received from Butch.

Notice About Drones
On August 25, 2015, the Region 55 Board approved a resolution to prohibit the use of drones at games, practices and scrimmages. Soccer is a player's game. The Board's concerns range from a drone interfering with the game to the very real possibility that the drone will come down and hurt someone. Therefore, in order to ensure the health, welfare and safety of our players, coaches, officials and spectators Region 55 is prohibiting the use of drones. Referees have also been instructed to suspend the match if a drone is seen flying over the playing field.
Thanks for being an ambassador of the game and for your help in providing a fun, safe and positive experience to our youth players.
