Langley students attend the Rivermen season opener

Lots of fun tonight at the season opening game of the Langley Rivermen. The team lost in the 2nd period of overtime but an amazing game none the less.

The Langley Rivermen are now working with the Langley DPAC in an initiative that encourages our elementary school students to read.  Local players will be arriving at various schools in their hockey bus and in uniform and they will read to and be read by Langley students.

The hockey players will also be playing scrimmage hockey with the kids in school gyms to encourage physical education within the school district of Langley.

Langley DPAC received 1000 FREE hockey tickets to give out to schools in the district to attend the first game of the season. I recognized lots of the kids and PAC members as well.

I am so in love with Frasier, the team mascot. He was very engaging with the kids and was a huge hit with them as well.

More to follow soon on our teaming up with the Langley Rivermen.10015170_833419460024371_2798532669543643278_n 10509643_833419476691036_2775720548487910552_n 10703701_833419443357706_2659681705750615511_n

Hope to see you guys at the next game as well.

    Hi there Beatrice! Sounds like a good time and a great reading initiative that is engaging and community based. How will the player visits and the complimentary tickets be distributed? Would love to be able to offer this at our school. Looking forward to your reply. Wendy SouthamWLE PAC

    • Hello there, I will be sending out information to ALL Langley Elementary schools this evening for a start next week. (I am hoping anyways.) So far, it sounds like reading will take place on Mondays and the scrimmage games will take place on Thursdays each week. The players will be leaving tickets with the teachers and I will also be handing them out on a per school basis as well as individually just like I did for this last game. Beatrice
