WinterFest Skate-A-Thon set for Sunday


By Kristal Fortune
Special to The PREVIEW

Are you ready for the Pagosa Multi-Purpose Skate-A-Thon? It takes place on Sunday, Feb. 15, in Town Park.

All those pledges you sign up go directly to benefit the purchase of the land for your permanent year-round skating facility. Pick up pledge forms at the hut or at Old West Press, 2145 Eagle Drive. You need to be at the hut for registration between 4 and 5 p.m. to register and get your number.

If you need skates, there are still used skates available for sale at the hut. Stop by or call 398-1593.

It has been very difficult to hold ice with the warm weather we have been having. However, the ice along the south side of the rink is good. We are open every day in the morning and maybe sometimes in the evening if the ice refreezes hard enough to skate on. Bring the whole family and experience what having a year-round skating facility will be like.

This Skate-A-Thon is very important for the success of your permanent skating rink. So, join in or call and ask how you can help. Donations are always gratefully accepted. Thanking you in advance.

For more information, call 398-1593.
