From December 1st to mid-March, the outdoor rink on the grounds of the Morden Courthouse is used every day. The grant for rink enhancements was spearheaded by Fire Chief Andy Thiessen and Constable Brent Menzies. The improvements included repairs to the boards and ice-cleaning tractor, providing a bench for lacking up skates, and new net near the bench to prevent skaters from getting pucks in the head while they lace up their skates.
The rink is used by groups of all ages and fosters a strong sense of community. Even when the temperatures hit -30º with wind chill, you’ll find brave souls outside enjoying the facility. The Foundation board is proud to support projects like this, ones that make our citizens happier and healthier, and that continue to build a strong sense of community.
