City seeks outdoor hockey rink help

(Newswatch Group/File)

CORNWALL – The city is looking for a few hands on deck to help with setting up outdoor hockey rinks across the city.

Outdoor rink boards have been set up at Alexander, Broadview, Dover Heights, King George, Menard, Optimist and Grant Parks.

But the city also wants to work with volunteers to set up additional rinks at Gallinger, Reg Campbell and Terry Fox parks.

It would set up the boards but the public would be responsible for flooding and maintenance.

In a release, the city concedes it doesn’t have the manpower to maintain all the outdoor rinks.

It says volunteers helping maintain community rinks is “part of Canada’s hockey heritage.”

For more information on volunteering call Taillon at 613-938-9898 extension 2.
