End of One Season, Right into Another!

It was a pretty nice winter as far as snow and temperatures went, and we seemed to have jumped right into spring (hey 3 days!).  

Special thanks to the dozen or so residents who contributed 150+ hours to making this a successful rink season - and to other folks picking up shovels from time-to-time.  Once we complete the tally, you can expect to see a surplus of about $4,500.  Details will come in our mid-term report in May.
