August 2019

Welcome back!
We hope everyone has had an enjoyable and relaxing summer. Club ice starts Tuesday, September 3 and we are looking forward to seeing everyone! Our sessions at both Mt. Pleasant and Ice World are filling up, so if you plan to lock in, please send your forms and payment to Judy Carrig ASAP. Forms are available on our website at

FYI, Mt. Pleasant is still under renovation. The rink will be open for contract customers but the lobby and front entrance will not be accessible. Skaters should enter through the hockey entrance that is to the left of the front door.

Thank you to our volunteers!
