Our supporters come from all over the community (even all over the state) and from all different backgrounds—some have played hockey and some simply saw the benefit an arena would be to families in our area. Some pitched in as soon as they heard about the vision to build the "Rink of Dreams." Some waited to see if we could really do it and then jumped in with generous contributions.
On Sunday, February 11, we hosted a party in their honor. Facility tours included unique facts like, "the ice temperature is 17°" and "the old Zamboni was the one our founder drove when he was in college" and "there are 9 miles of tubing under the concrete floor that transport the coolant that keeps the ice frozen." They brought their families to enjoy skating and to meet volunteers, past and present, who worked on construction and programs.
If you missed the party, please take a moment to watch this video. It's a quick chronicle of our history.
Please know how much we appreciate YOU!
