Community members have raised concerns about the rink's rotting boards and broken fencing. Given the popularity of the rink, the board decided it was time to replace the aging rink. It will cost approximately $130,000 for a new rink plus an additional $70,000 to replace the rink lights. The rotting wooden boards will be replaced with fibre glass boards, new fencing will be placed above the boards and new lighting will be installed if the budget allows.
Grants have been applied for to complete this project and we are optimistically hoping for a fall construction date.
As a fundraiser, we are also selling advertising space along to boards to businesses who would like to sponsor this project. If you know of a business that might be interested in sponsoring our new rink or would like to know more, please contact Stephanie at email@example.com.
You can also support the rink by getting involved with our community garage sale on Saturday, May 23.
