Long-time football clock-keeper in Bristol Armand Choiniere oversaw his last game of his officiating career last Thursday at the annual Thanksgiving Day game between Bristol Eastern and Bristol Central high schools. To recognize his efforts through the years, Choiniere was given the honor of making the coin toss to open the game. He also was presented with a proclamation by local state legislators acknowledging his eight decades involved with city football.
