FOR Ribbon Cutting With Mt. Shasta Chamber

“Best Skating Season in Mount Shasta”

Posted on Mt. Shasta Chamber website, January 21, 2014
http://mtshastachamber.com/blog/2014/01/best-skating-season-in-mount-shasta/

Friends of the Rink (FOR) joins the Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce amid the most successful ice skating season in the history of the Siskiyou Ice Rink. The 2013-2014 skating season, which runs through February 2nd, has been filled with sunny days and abundant skating opportunities for families in the Mt. Shasta vicinity as well as well as many holiday visitors and guests from out of the area.

“We love seeing so many people out on the ice enjoying themselves. Everyone has so much fun! Children, teens, adults and seniors all love to skate. It really makes us feel good about what FOR has accomplished,” says Friends of the Rink board member Pauline Uri.

FOR is a grass-roots nonprofit organization made up of individuals from Mt. Shasta and surrounding communities. Its members are passionate about skating, community recreation opportunities and the Siskiyou Ice Rink. FOR operates under the umbrella of the Associated Charitable Resource of South Siskiyou (ACROSS).

For the past ten years FOR has assisted the rink in numerous capacities, including: raising funds for youth and adult hockey programs and school field trip opportunities; providing volunteers to assist with rink operations; organizing special events, and helping to promote the rink and its activities.

Over the past two seasons FOR has taken a more active role in managing the rink in partnership with the Mount Shasta Recreation and Parks District. Improved coordination and management has resulted in two financially successful seasons, and Siskiyou Ice Rink is flourishing.

FOR is in need of donations to support the purchase of much-needed new rental skates, solar panels, concrete pad repairs, and a roof. Please visit the website at www.siskiyourink.org or call (530) 926-5631 to learn more about Friends Of the Rink and how you can donate and support the Siskiyou Ice Rink. The Siskiyou Ice Rink is located at Shastice Park, 800 Rockfellow Dr. in Mount Shasta, California.

Participating in the Mt. Shasta Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting for Friends of the Rink (F.O.R.) are, left to right, intern/volunteer Shannon Shaw, F.O.R. Board chairman Steve Bachmann, volunteer Norm Burkett, F.O.R. Board treasurer and rink manager John Stackfleth, F.O.R. Board vice-chairman Pauline Uri and Chamber events coordinator Vicky Zanni.
