What does it take to build the community rink? It takes a village. Naw, just kidding you. It takes volunteers.
At the beginning of the season volunteers are required to: help clear away the leaves and debris in order to prepare the base ice. As well throughout the rink season the work involves snow clearing, patching and flooding. We have a leaf blower (though the kindness of a neighbour) and CHARA owns a snowblower too! For volunteer work descriptions click here.
The ice rink is supervised during the following hours.
- Monday to Friday, 6:30 to 8:30 pm
- Saturday and Sunday 12:00 to 5:00 pm.
Operates from December 15 to February 28 if weather permits.
