Alumnus Chet Homer ’69 Funds New Zamboni in Honor of 50th Reunion

Prior to the first varsity hockey game of the season, Mr. Homer took to the ice wearing his number 11 jersey to take Belmont Hill’s brand new Zamboni for a ride. Whenever Mr. Homer is on the ice at Belmont Hill, it’s a good thing. Entering Belmont Hill in 1965, Mr. Homer was a standout varsity hockey player, scoring 43 goals his senior year. The team record that season was 19-3. His love for hockey is also etched into his mahogany panel, depicting Snoopy in the penalty box holding a hockey stick. After Belmont Hill, Mr. Homer also played hockey at Dartmouth.
With his family on hand, wife Shirley, son Geoff ‘03 and his wife, Lilli, daughter Kristin and her husband, Andrew, and their son Teddy, Mr. Homer took a few laps around the rink prior to the Belmont Hill vs. Berwick game.    

“His care and dedication to Belmont Hill is unmatched and we can’t thank him enough,” said Athletic Director George Tahan. The School’s previous Zamboni was 20 years old.
