Ronnie presents: Playing Hockey at North River Rink, Feb. 20th

Ronnie MacKinley will join us in Clyde River next Saturday, February 20th at 1:30 p.m. to talk about the days when all the communities in the area went head to head in the game of hockey. All are welcome, and we extend a special invitation to those who played on the teams in the 1950s and 60s to join us. Make sure to take along any memorabilia you have to display for this occasion. We are bringing in extra chairs, as we know it will be popular. However, you may find yourself falling off your chair laughing when natural storyteller Ronnie gets wound up.

I found a feature on the Island Narratives site that talks about the interesting history and community spirit that saw the North River Rink constructed in 1949, opened in 1950 and serving the area for many years, link here.

See you next week at the Riverview Community Centre in Clyde River. Refreshments will be served.
