Ice Rink reaping the rewards

January 6, 2012

As it turns out, the political wrangling and the financing debates have worked themselves out, adding to a record season at the newly reopened ice rink.

December attendance at the rink doubled over December 2009—the last season the rink was open.
Going into the New Year, the rink already is 85 percent of the total attendance than it had in 2009-10.

“What a time to reopen the Ice Rink,” said Stuart Brown, the Town’s recreation director.

“Attendance has been through the roof and the quality of the experience on the ice for our guests has surpassed our expectations,” he said.
