Although the weather outside is currently warm, plans are underway for the McLeod Community League to once again host a newcomer skate this January at our outdoor rinks.
This free event is designed to allow people that haven't had much experience on ice a chance to try skating. McLeod does have some extra equipment, including skates and helmets that can be borrowed during this event. Experienced skaters are also welcome to attend and enjoy this fun event. Last year we had approximately 70 people, including many new Canadians and first time ice skaters come out to this event and we are hoping for a great turnout again this year.
The event is scheduled for 1pm to 3pm on January 5, 2019, weather dependent.
McLeod Community League would like to acknowledge the land on which we are located is Treaty 6 territory, and is a traditional meeting ground, a travelling route and home for many Indigenous peoples such as the Cree, Blackfoot, Saulteaux, Metis and other Indigenous peoples.
