Jamestown, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- The Jamestown Ironmen visited Bemus Point Elementary School all day Wednesday, Dec. 14.

The players read to the students of eight different classrooms with their mascot, Dynamo, entertaining other students in the building. After the books were read, the Ironmen took a detour to the gymnasium of the school where they played floor hockey with the young students. The team and Dynamo demonstrated skills like stopping shots, shooting and passing. The children were able to play alongside the hockey players and have fun with Dynamo with dancing, high fives, and hugs. Autographs were signed by both players and Dynamo throughout the day.

“A lot of our guys read on the bus rides,” said Ironmen goaltender Joe Ballmer. “The drives are really long and it takes our minds off being stuck in a bus for the long hours.”
