Toddlers braved the ice for the first time with avid hockey players and parents.
Some adults laced up their skates for the first time in 25 years.
50 kids and 20 adults attended the family skating party on Jan.6 for hours of skating, cookies to fill the afternoon snack appetite, and hot chocolate to warm their tummies.
Spectators reminisced about their holiday experiences, while watching the skaters glide across the ice.
The free event was hosted by the CHAMP Team (Choosing Healthy Attitudes through Modeling Pals), an Alberta Health Services group for at risk children and youth in the community.
“We were thrilled with the response and will definitely be doing something like this again soon,” said project coordinator Sandra Hardy.
The CHAMP team encourages everyone to stay active over the winter months. Doing so can improve physical and mental well-being.
Sandra and two youth workers, Erin Robinson and Tammy Cook provide support services at the school before, during, and after school hours to meet the needs of students and their families.
