Out­door rinks closed, Sher­brooke of­fers Spring Break al­ter­na­tives

Sherbrooke Record - - EDITORIAL - Record Staff

Ex­cep­tion­ally mild tem­per­a­tures at the be­gin­ning of the week have sig­nif­i­cantly dam­aged nat­u­ral ice sur­faces and the fore­cast for the com­ing days is not con­ducive to re­build­ing them so City of Sher­brooke has cho­sen to close its nat­u­ral out­door rinks for the rest of the sea­son. On the other hand, the City is of­fer­ing a range of ac­tiv­i­ties for the com­ing spring break.

First of all, the re­frig­er­ated ‘bleublanc rouge’ rink is still ac­ces­si­ble and free skat­ing and free hockey time slots are avail­able ev­ery day in Sher­brooke’s are­nas. Open­ing hours can be found at sher­brooke.ca/pati­nage. Mount Belle­vue should also be ac­ces­si­ble to the pub­lic if the weather per­mits.

The Éva-sené­cal mu­nic­i­pal li­brary has sev­eral pro­pos­als for young stu­dents:

March 5 at 1:30 pm: Let's go to the cir­cus

March 6 at 10:30 am: Wake up to read­ing

March 10 at 10:30 am: Story time. A free swim pe­riod will also be of­fered at the Mont­calm pool from March 5 to 10, be­tween 1 and 4 pm.
