Carl Yoder, Maintenance Supervisor said they are ready for a new year, “We are generally open to the public…we open on October 1st, we also have college hockey here, which would be Susquehanna University and also Bucknell University.”


Yoder also talked about how the location of the ice rink makes it easily accessible for the community, “Ice skating is fun, the facility has been here since 1960, we do a lot of work to keep it a nice facility for the public and it’s a nice walking distance in the city of sunbury for the youth to get here.”
