The unsung heroes of community outdoor rinks

Our team had a great time today helping the Community of Trumpeter flood the snowbank rink built by their volunteers.

After reading an article in the Edmonton Journal about the unsung heroes of community outdoor rinks, we were inspired to reach out and help in any way we could. With a couple trucks and some of our guys, we were able to help create a rink to be enjoyed by the community.

Thank you for letting us be a part of this project!
