Barker School in Dauphin hosted a few other schools for a Hometown Hockey assembly.
Kyle Buttenham, MC with Hometown Hockey, says there’s one thing they try to do in every community.
“We aim to go to at least one elementary school in each of the communities to engage the youth.”
At the assembly, the kids were shown two videos about what Hometown Hockey is and a sneak peek into some of the stories that are a part of the stop here in Dauphin. The kids also got to see a bit of the Steve Goodtime Rockin’ Hockey Show.
Buttenham says they had a lot of fun at the assembly and it looked like the students did too.
“It was great, it’s so funny, especially when Steve Goodtime does his show for them, just watching the kids laugh, smile and make some noise.”
Going to elementary schools is one of Buttenham’s highlights from every Hometown Hockey weekend. He’s also looking forward to the ceremonial round dance with the Treaty 2 First Nations.
