Thank You to Our Outdoor Rink Volunteers!
It’s been a challenging winter, but through all the stress of the pandemic and the occupation, it has been great to have access to outdoor activity spaces, especially our local outdoor rinks. I want to say a big Thank You! to all the volunteers who spend hours maintaining these rinks for us. You make winter much more fun.
I’d like to make special mention of the Brewer Oval, maintained by volunteer Mike Rivet. Two of our recent Olympians—Isabelle Weidemann and Ivanie Blondin—trained on that oval. Congrats to all!
