Wilderness Get Involved With “I Love To Read Month” at Local Schools

CLOQUET, MN – February 2nd, 2018 – The Wilderness are proud to announce that they are going to be involved with local schools and their “Love to Read Month” during February. Throughout the year they have been visiting classrooms to help out and read at Washington Elementary, Churchill Elementary, Winterquist Elementary, South Terrace Elementary and New Horizon Christian Preschool. The team has decided to provide an incentive for students to read during the month of February by providing them a free ticket to a Wilderness game if they read five books on their own throughout the month.

Head Coach Tim Madsen had this to say about the Wilderness getting involved during the month of February. “Our players and staff are very excited to be a part of ‘I Love to Read Month’. It is another great opportunity to be a part of the community and give back. Our players will be great role models for the young kids, and represent our organization proudly.”

The Wilderness have been approached by schools in Hermantown and Esko to get involved during the month and have decided to read there in addition to the classrooms that they have already been visiting. If there are any other schools or classrooms in the area that wish to have the Wilderness players join them please contact Assistant Coach Michael Benedict by email: mbenedict@wildernesshockey.com.

The Wilderness are on the road this weekend as they take on the Bismarck Bobcats in two divisional games. They will be returning home next weekend February 9th and 10th as they take on the Janesville Jets. They will be wearing specialty jerseys that weekend that will be auctioned during the games with all proceeds going to Cancer research.
