The ODR is officially open and ready for the fun times to begin with friends and family.
So dust off your skates, dress warm and have fun.
Many thanks to Jim Kot and his rink volunteers for their hard work in making this ready for the holidays.
More ODR details on hours and groups and volunteering to help clear the rink can be found at https://champlainpark.org/the-rink/
