Our rink boards are in need of replacement. The current ones we are using were purchased used about 18 years ago and are really showing their age. We have multiple boards with damage and finding replacement parts is not an option anymore. Every year we put the old boards back up and hope we will not have any major issues. Some of the brackets and boards are now becoming unsafe. These rink boards not only effect the youth hockey league but also the High School hockey team along with Learn to Skate classes and public open skating that we offer.
The new rink boards will cost about $120,000. We have been fundraising for quite some time and with addition of a generous grant from the Shawano County Tourism Council our new rink boards are within reach. We just like to raise at least an additional $30,000 to get this project started.
All donors (businesses, families, or individuals) of $500 or more will be recognized on a donor plaque that will be placed on the top rail of the rink board and visible to anyone standing outside the rink watching the game. We also have room for a few major business sponsors. Their name or logo would be placed on the back side of the rink boards facing the entrances to the rink. This is the first things visitors will see when walking into the rink.
Thank you for your support of this important project.
