Tuesday night, the Fargo Public Library hosted a story time event featuring players from the Fargo Force, our local USHL (junior hockey) team. We got there a little late, missing out on a few stories about Penguins, but we did make it in time for arts & crafts time, where the kids were able to make trading card frames and hang out with the players.
The two players, forward Alex Iafallo and defenseman Neal Goff, spent time with the kids while they put the crafts together ,were great with the kids, and gave some encouraging tips to the young hockey players there. The cards available of the two players were taken up early on, so we got them to sign copies of the event flyer. My wife picked out the card of backup goaltender Reed Peters for Caroline's frame, mostly because she like the team's blue alternate jerseys.
We all had a great time at the event and it's always good to see players interact with fans, no matter how small of a level it may be.
