RiverKings and RiverThing Wrap Up Busy Week in Memphis Metro Area

SOUTHAVEN, Miss – The Mid-South’s hockey team continued their busy off-season stopping at four locations in the Memphis metro area starting with a Mascot Appearance on Monday. RiverThing greeted a crowd at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital for their annual, luau-themed Half-Christmas Party. Dressed in his Hawaiian shirt, Thing played and danced in the ukulele band and made great memories with the children of Le Bonheur. RiverThing even got excited when his favorite white-bearded jolly man, Santa Claus, arrived at the party.

The RiverKings and RiverThing spent the rest of the week stopping at different locations teaching the campers of Camp Bold, Blann’s Martial Arts, and Harding Academy-White Station the fundamentals of hockey through Sticks are for Kids. The campers learned to pass, shoot, and handle a puck. Every Sticks are for Kids ended with a small game where the campers applied what they learned.

Here are all the locations the RiverKings stopped:

  • Le Bonheur’s Children’s Hospital
  • Camp Bold presented by The Arc Northwest Mississippi
  • Blann’s Martial Arts
  • Harding Academy - White Station
