Outdoor rink at Reflection

Mike Palumbo and Lions Club member Orlando Pecora spearheaded a project that has given Goldenites a chance to  skate in the great outdoors on Reflection Lake. The Lions Club project was made possible with the help of Golden Fire & Rescue, who flooded the ice, and the Highway 1 Petro-Canada, who supplied fuel for Palumbo’s Bobcat.

The fire department will continue to flood the ice as required.

The rink is open for anyone to use, and if the project proves to be popular there could be some organized activities at Reflection Lake in the future.

“Hopefully in the future if it works out well we’ll promote some Sunday family activities and provide refreshments or something like that,” Pecora said.
