Students at Elkford Secondary School spent a happy Halloween last week hanging out with the Ghostriders.

Players from Fernie’s Junior B hockey team spent the afternoon playing floor hockey and talking to the teenagers about what it takes to be a high level athlete. It was an opportunity for the kids to meet with some of the Ghostriders, and a chance for the Ghostriders to give back to the community.

“Our guys went out to represent the Fernie Ghostriders, and every time we go out in the community we represent the City of Fernie, all our fans, our corporate sponsors, the executives, as well as the friends and families of all of us,” said Head Coach Barry Wolff.

“As a coaching staff we are very proud of the way the players have handled themselves at public appearances.”

Wolff went on to say, “It teaches the players how to get along with a wide variety of people in different situations, something that will be invaluable for the rest of their lives.”

The Ghostriders donate their time to a number of different community events and causes throughout the hockey season. They’ve also started up the Read with the Riders program and are visiting elementary school classes to show children how important school is.

Anyone interested in involving the team in an event, or participating in Read with the Riders, can contact Barry Wolff at 250-423-0619.
