It's our year
Its time to share the love. Winning the 2019 Kraft Hockeyville Grand prize is within our grasp. An NHL game and $250,000 for arena upgrades.
Built in 1977, after 42 years our arena is in need of some TLC. Like many of you, I have fond memories of skating in the “barn” arena. Figure skating on cold winter days was often accompanied by snow coming through the roof. The year before being condemned the community came together making the necessary repairs to get one more season out of the old arena.
With all that has been happening in Orono over the last few years – IGA closing, LCBO closing and most devastating, CIBC closing, this win could give our community the boost it needs.
Orono arena is in need of big-ticket capital renovations that are crucial to ongoing operations. The big one, is a new ice pad. According to Hockey Canada, approximately 45% of Canada’s rinks (1,350) are all ready beyond their projected life expectancy of 32 years. The boards are rotting and the floor is in dire need of repair. The snack bar has dished out a lot of hot dogs and served the community well, but it needs a face lift.
