The new Lake Nebagmon Ice Skating Rink and the Herb Moss Memorial Warming Shed have opened at the upper area of the village’s Ravine Park at East Camp Nebagamon Drive between First Street and Ravine Drive.
The rink is lighted for night skating and parking is available in the Ravine Park area.
Tim Fitzgerald, chairman of the Village’s Parks and Recreation Committee, expressed the gratitude of the children and families of the area to the people and businesses who worked on the new warming shed. The village provided the site for the rink and Walt Moss Trucking was awarded the contract to build the rink. That inspired the Moss family to build a warming shed.
All of the materials and labor for the warming shed were donated by the Moss family. Among other donors were: Lance Moreau, who provided wiring and electrical materials, Jeff Cottew of Hanco Utilities, who donated the burial of underground power cable; Volmer Anderson, who donated electric heaters and underground wires for rink lights; and Don Harvey, who donated the tongue and groove paneling.
Currently, a motion light located on the property turns on at dusk and off at 10 p.m. Official hours for the rink were on the agenda for Tuesday’s village board meeting.
