Bells Corners 2012 top news (part 2)

Before I list some of the top stories from January 2012, here are a few 2013 photos:
Some people LOVE winter.
Westcliffe rink was in great shape.
Lots of community members are helping out.
The Lynwood rinks were in decent shape too – a huge improvement from the last two years.
The snowblower emerged from the bunker for the first time in three years. The local students operating it did a great job, aided by parent volunteers and a few hockey players.
The building is open Mon.-Fri. 6-9 p.m. and weekends 12-7:30. Use the back entrance.
The rink operators are supposed to keep an hourly count of the number of skaters who used the facilities- the Lakeview rinks routinely draw many hundreds of visitors per day (as you can see from this photo taken Saturday) while the Bells Corners rinks are often deserted. Now that the ice is good our next challenge is spreading the word about how great our community rinks are.
