Jackals in the Community, January, 2016
Paws and Pucks Photoshoot
January 5th was full of fun at the First Arena Corporate Office as we got ready for our January 30th Paws and Pucks game. We held a photo shoot with players for our upcoming poster giveaway. Our office staff brought in their dogs for the shoot, and after several blooper pictures we finally got some great ones. Our Art Director, Danielle Alred, put together an awesome poster.
Booster Club Holiday Party
The Elmira Jackals Booster Club held their annual Holiday Party for the players at the Community Arts of Elmira building on January 12th. The players were given presents from the Booster Club, along with dinner and fun!
Chemung County SPCA Visit
In preparation for our January 30th Paws and Pucks game, we spent the 13th at the Chemung County SPCA. The guys were split up into different groups to work on different projects. A few guys spent time in the shelter food pantry, while others shoveled walking paths outside, and then everyone spent time playing with the cats and dogs at the shelter. We collected video footage to be played at the Paws and Pucks game to promote the local SPCA, and their evolvement with the Elmira Jackals.
On January 26th, the Elmira Jackals spent the afternoon at Finn Academy, a charter school in Elmira, NY for grades K-3. The entire school met in the gymnasium, and greeted the Jackals upon their arrival. Finn is an arts based school, so each learning activity includes dancing, singing, or a game. The Finn word of the day was, "teamwork." The Jackals, created a "rainstorm," danced to Finn's version of the "Whip and Nay Nay," and played 1 fish, 2 fish. The guys had a great time spending the afternoon with the Finn Academy students.
Diven Elementary Catch of the Day
On January 29th, Blade stopped by Diven Elementary Schoold to see his Dolphin friends. Diven Elementary has developed a program, Good Kid Patrol "Catch of the Day." All Good Kid Patrols earned on the "Catch of the Day," have their name put into the main office. Once a month, 10 names are pulled from the net and those students are awarded 4 tickets each to an upcoming Jackals game. We love rewarding our local youth for making good choices and making their schools a better place. Congrats Diven Elementary, keep up the good work!
Skate with Corning Hurricane Mites
The Corning Hurricanes spent the afternoon at the First Arena for a skate with a few Jackals players. The kids had a great time, and the Jackals, as always, loved sharing their love of the game with the local youth.
