Kraft Hockeyville


Thank you to all our amazing friends who took the time to share their story in the Kraft Hockeyville Contest! We may not have turned in the most nominations but we hope you take the time to read the wonderful, heartwarming stories about the impact hockey and this rink has had on our community!  It was so cool to read about the rich history & tradition shared by so many! When the judges read our story we can't imagine we won't make the top 10 and then we have no doubt when the voting opens our community will rally! So excited for the announcement on April 11th!
