The recreation department of the town of Antigonish says interest is high to build an outdoor skating rink in the area, but more volunteers are required to make the dream a reality. Active Living Co-ordinator, Emily Stephenson says that some people have put their names forward to help with maintenance and day to day operations of the rink, but more help could be used.

Stephenson says that a meeting with interested volunteers will be held on December 11th, and they are still accepting applications from interested community members. Stephenson says that without more man power, it will be difficult to run a schedule for the rink. It was reported at town council in October that the outdoor skating rink will be built at the ball field next to the regional school.

An old winter past time is coming to the Town of Antigonish. A temporary outdoor skating facility is being installed at the ball field next to the regional school in town.
Last evening, Town Council announced their support for the project, which is largely being organized by the recreation department. Mayor Laurie Boucher says an outdoor rink is a great addition to the area:
The town’s recreation department has some volunteers lined up to help with maintenance through the winter, but the group is looking for more volunteers. If interested, reach out to the town’s Active Living Co-ordinator, Emily Stephenson at 902-867-5596.
