The Binghamton Senators took advantage of some mid-week down time to visit a couple of area elementary schools. All-star center Jason Spezza and goalie Ray Emery fielded questions from an eager class of fifth graders at Vestal Hills Elementary School on Tuesday afternoon.
Josh Langfeld and Antoine Vermette followed up the Vestal Hills visit with a trip to St. Thomas Aquinas Elementary School in Binghamton’s west side after practice on Wednesday. The players fielded questions in the school gymnasium and showed the students how to use various pieces of hockey equipment.
If you missed your favorite Senator at the school visits then get your tickets now for the “Spaghetti on Ice” dinner being held at the Holiday Inn Arena in downtown Binghamton on Sunday, March 6.
For $15 you can be served spaghetti by the Sens with proceeds from the event going towards the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Players will serve a spaghetti dinner between 1 and 3 p.m. with the players competing for the most tips. At 3:30 p.m. selected Senator’s signed jerseys will be auctioned live.
Throughout the event fans can have their picture taken with their favorite Senator or collect autographs from the players. Commemorative t-shirts will be for sale and fans can test their hockey skills in the slap shot den.
Each guest attending the dinner will receive a “Spaghetti on Ice” puck and be entered into a drawing to win a Senators jersey signed by the team.
