Rink Shovelling Needed!

Subject: Help with snow from storm Champlain Rink
Date: Sat, 8 Feb 2020 13:44:26 +0000
From: Jason I <jason_ilacqua@hotmail.com>

The snow plow was able to remove a lot of snow from the big storm we had. He was able to remove a lot of the snow but he’s having issues with the large snow banks along the boards. He’s heading back to the rink but we need your help.

Anyone that is available this morning to help push the snow off the boards or has a snowblower available we would greatly appreciate all the help we can get.

The plow is heading to the rink this morning so please let me know if you can help out.

Jason
