Franklin Elementary School held its annual Skate Night last week at the Union Sports Arena with an extra special perk: This year, members of the new WHS girls’ ice hockey team attended to support Franklin students and share their love of hockey and skating with them.

The team members helped the younger students with everything from simple tasks, like how to tie their laces, to taking them out onto the ice to assist with skating.

The result was a wonderful time had by Westfield students of all ages and their families.
