More than hockey at the old arena
through the pages of the Stanstead Journal, one would have found that there was more than just hockey played at the old arena. Yes, Maurice Richard was there but, like the Forum, the arena hosted a lot of acts.
Come relive these moments as Cabin Fever revives these days. We’re going back to the days of real wrestlers with the Eastern Townships Wrestling Association; the age of Rock & Roll which began when the arena was young with Bloodshot Bill and more…
Tickets are only $20 in advance, $25 at the door. So you have a week to dust off your swirling skirts, get hold of some Brylcreem, shine those multi-colored shoes and show up Friday, April 8th, at the old arena in Rock Island, at 7:30 p.m. It’s a new Pat Burns Arena fundraiser which should be as much fun as the New Year’s Eve party that brought six hundred of us out to help the new arena. Now come say goodbye to the old one.
