Many hardy souls made it out to another Discovery Ridge New Year’s Day skate. It was great to see so many family and friends gather to welcome the new year.
A huge thank you to our special guests, Canada’s own gold medalists Meaghan Mikkelson and Natalie Spooner (also from Amazing Race Canada), as well as Rebecca Johnston from the Canadian National Women’s Hockey Team. Together they showed us how the great game of hockey is to be played! We’d also like to extend a thank you to Meaghan for letting us see and hold her gold medals from both the 2010 Sochi and the 2014 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games. It was our pleasure having their expertise and community spirit shared at our event. Their time with us will serve as an inspiration to all.
We appreciate the ongoing support of Time Music Studios, Javino, the DRCA and the many volunteers who gave of their time to make this community event a success.
Happy New Year to All!
If anyone attending the event mistakenly walked away with helmets that they believed to be their own, we are missing two youth black helmets, one clearly labeled Liana with several colourful stickers, the other labeled INSIDE with the name Liam. If you discover you have the helmets please contact the DRCA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
