Bruins Fever Hits The Blue Shutters!
For the past month, Boston Bruins fans all across New England have been celebrating our team's championship -- and the Stanley Cup trophy has made appearances in cities and towns across the region. This weekend, the Blue Shutters Beachside Inn got into the act as we welcomed back old friends Geri and Matt Ravlich. Matt played for the Bruins back in the Bobby Orr era and proudly wears the ring from the Bruins championship season in 1972. Matt and Geri are also big fans of the Blue Shutters and were here for another visit this weekend. In Matt's honor, we built a replica of Stanley Cup (that's the smaller one of the table in this photo -- Matt is on the right, Geri in the center and innkeeper Ed on the left). When one of our guests saw our trophy, he ran to the car and pulled the life-size version out of his trunk (we later saw him carry the trophy over his head down to Good Harbor Beach). You never know who'll you see at the Blue Shutters -- you just might spot Matt Ravlich here later this summer...he and Geri will be back in a few weeks, next month and in September!
