President’s Message Feb 2017

Kids Christmas Party, Family Skate Party, Casino, Easter Events … busy times.

By now we would have had the free Family Skate Party… I am assuming we had good weather and were able to have it this year. Last year it was a puddle and a little warm for the ice. Thanks to all the volunteers, the rink rats and our staff for helping out.

Rink Rats – what can I say? The crews have been doing a great job, the ice is looking good. Thank you to Brian Moule for keeping us organized and everyone has been working hard to get the large amounts of snow removed from both rink and parking lot.

More fun… Plans are underway for another Fun Money Casino for Mar 25. This is a great event that many of you have probably enjoyed in the past. I know Karina and I sure have. We will have music, special drinks, lots of prizes, Silent auction items etc. Our Fun Money Casino is a good fund raiser for us – so please invite your friends and neighbors. If you are in a position within a company that could donate, we are looking for donations for prizes and silent auction items, please contact the front desk.

Advance Notice – Community Clean up tentatively ( upon city approval) is set for Sept 9, 2017

Thank you to Richard Gotfried and Peter Demong for donations to kids’ Xmas party.

I see we had some reworks again News Years Eve that lasted about 1⁄2 an hour, thank you for who was responsible for the show. Not saying it wasn’t, but please make sure in future that area is cleaned up after.

We are looking at replacing lights around rink. Wondering if there is someone in area that might be able to donate bucket truck time to help us do this. We are able to o er a Tax deductible receipt for value of the use, and remember we are able to o er that for donations in future if that helps on your taxes.

That’s it for this letter, thanks again for reading and see you at the Free Family Skate Party.
