For the organization as a whole, Friday was a major milestone.
"It's recognition," said Force 10 Chairperson Dawn Trudeau. "This is a great statement by the city, by the community to say the Storm is really doing something special right now. People are talking about the Storm, they're excited about the Storm. It's amazing to see and it's so exciting for us to feel the support we're getting from the greater community and how much joy people are taking from the season we're having."
