City shows appreciation to skating sponsors

At a special event recently, the City of North Battleford and the Leisure Services department expressed their thanks to following service clubs for their continued support of the free Public Skating Program: Bonaventure Lions Club, North Battleford Lions Club, Kiwanis Club of the Battlefords, North Battleford Kinsmen Club, The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 70, North West Hockey Development, Rotary Club of the Battlefords, North Battleford Elks Club, St. Joseph’s Knights of Columbus 7336. Skaters of all abilities and ages (preschoolers to seniors) are able to take advantage of the free ice times, made possible by the commitment and support from these service clubs. Public Skating is offered at the Civic Centre on Saturday afternoons 12:15-1:45 p.m. Three sessions a week of preschool and senior skating are offered Wednesdays 1:15-2:15 p.m. at the Civic Centre and 10-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-2:20 p.m. at the Don Ross Arena. During holidays and school breaks additional public skating times are added to the schedule, including a few sessions of family shinny. During the 2018 season, approximately 150 hours of free programming was available for skaters in both the Civic Centre Arena and the Don Ross Arena and over 3,000 children and adults will have participated. In addition to supporting free skating in North Battleford, all of these service clubs contribute to a variety of other community programs and projects throughout the year. Photo submitted
