I wouldn’t go tonight, but the Pearen Park skating rink is now open.
Every year, volunteers zamboni the ice and manage free skates for anyone who drops by. They even offer lessons to new skaters.
It’s all gratis (though donations are welcome). It’s a beautiful, community-organized, ground (ice?)-up endeavour.
The good people at the MDCA can always use a helping hand, and they’re looking for volunteers to help with staffing the skate hut, flood the ice, and offer lessons.
