our ceremonial opening

Thanks to WCCO-TV’s Mark Rosen and BUZ’N 102.9 FM’s Paul Koffy along with members of the local hockey and figure skating community for being part of our ceremonial opening! Those on hand met Miracle on Ice Gold Medalist, former NHL Star  and Warroad-native Dave Christian while skating with local high school and local youth hockey players and figure skaters.

Wells Fargo will provided complimentary hot cocoa and Stagecoach rides through Loring Park as part of the grand opening, and the Warming House courtesy of CenterPoint Energy was open for use. Thanks to all who participated!
