On December 3, alumni once again took to the ice and celebrated the return of the Annual Alumni Skating Party. The weather cooperated beautifully, with unseasonably mild temperatures, allowing many families to enjoy their dinner outdoors without masks. It was so great to see everyone after almost two years of social distancing.
The mood was appropriately festive. Kid-friendly food and adult beverages kept everyone cheerful. Distributing the meal over three dinner times made all feel comfortable about eating. And despite the fact that masks needed to be worn at the buffet and while picking up ice skates, no one seemed to mind.
It was fun to see how all the children had grown since the 2019 party, and there were a lot of new babies and toddlers who joined the fun this year. They always love a sled ride on the ice. As younger children left the rink and headed home for bedtime, teens showed off their skating skills and used one end of the ice for broomball. A good time was had by all!
Plan to join this joyful alumni event next year on Friday, December 2, 2022!
