The recreation department for the Town of St Anthony has updated their 23-year-old Zamboni with a new one!
The St. Anthony Recreation Advisory Committee looks after recreation for the town and surrounding areas, and offers facilities, parks and programs to help local residents have access to amenities that help them lead a healthier lifestyle.
With the assistance of an IGA grant this past year, the Polar Centre has replaced its existing 1998 Zamboni, which was continuously causing major issues (including losing ice time due to waiting for parts and repairs).
The Polar Centre is at the crossroads of community recreation in St. Anthony, carrying ice for six months out of the year with approximately 300 participants that use it for two hockey leagues, minor hockey, figure skating, public skates, birthday rentals, private rentals, broomball and town special events.
The IGA is very pleased to have contributed towards this worthwhile initiative and congratulates the St. Anthony Recreation Advisory Committee in its ongoing efforts in the community!
