March 2019/ Scarborough, Ontario

It was a bitterly cold January day; when I noticed a young man standing in a parkette flooding an ice rink. I got out of the car and went over to introduce myself and ask how he was doing. It turned out to be Galen Richardson, a young man we had featured in the July edition of Bluffs Monitor. His father was with him and we started talking. Galen’s father Keith told me about the hours that go into the rink. They were having trouble with the water supply freezing when none other than Bluffs Monitor contributing writer Jim Sanderson pulled up, with tools no less, to see if he could help. And this is how I discovered the team of volunteers that go into building and maintaining the natural ice rinks that dot our community. So on page 3 is your chance to meet a handfull of the dedicated volunteers that are responsible for this valuable community resource. And to those rinks and volunteers I didn’t get to...I’ll see you next year.
