Around the Rink

Rink Season Begins!

I still can’t believe how fast the summer went by, and now here we are getting ready for the start of the 2016/17 skating program. Every year at this time, I start to get excited, knowing we are getting ready to kick off another great skating season at the community rink. Here are some updates of where we are for this year’s season.

The McCauley Community League will once again will be working in partnership with the KIDS organization for the winter season. The proposal that has been worked out between the two groups is basically the same as it has been for the last few years, The working agreement can be found on the MCL website at A big thank you to both groups, the McCauley Community League and KIDS, who worked together on this very successful partnership. We look forward to having another wonderful winter working together.

Once again, the rink will focus on being open seven days a week when the weather permits. Skating hours can be found on the McCauley Community League’s website and Facebook. We will have the full schedule in the next issue of the paper.

Here is some of the special programming that we are working on for the 2016/17 skating season. The McCauley Cup (EPS cops versus community kids) will be held in December. The third annual New Year’s Eve skating party will be on Saturday, December 31. The Family Day skating party will be on Monday, February 20. All times for the above events will be posted in December.

If you have any ideas for winter skating programs, please feel free to contact the rink committee at
