Hanover — The 60th annual Shrine Maple Sugar Bowl football game will have an added highlight this year when the game will be held under the lights for the first time in history.

The game, involving 72 graduated senior all-stars from Vermont and New Hampshire, will kickoff at 5:30 Saturday, Aug. 3 on Dartmouth's Memorial Field.

The annual parade will precede the game at noon.

The Granite State holds a 44-13-2 edge after last year's decisive 62-24 victory.

The game, sponsored by the Bektash Temple of Concord, N.H., Mt. Sinai of Montpelier and Cairo Temple of Rutland, is the second oldest of its kind in the country and the third largest, having raised more than $5 million for the research and care of burned and crippled children.
