Rinks Volunteers Needed

                           The SKATING SEASON is around the corner!
We are getting ready to support the community ice rinks at Katimavik School and at Young's Pond. 
                                           We need your help! 
We are looking for teams of 5 people  per week during the winter months  to help clear snow
                  and flood both ice rinks.  Water is now available at Young's Pond .  
                                    We cannot do it without you!  
We are hoping to have enough volunteers sign up so that you will only have to make a
                                       one week commitment.   
If you plan on using the ice rinks this year, you can sign up at Katimavik School 
                                            OR Young's Pond  
                                      Thank you for your support!
