Canada 150 Skate Day a Huge Success!

Over 200 skaters of all ages and abilities participated in Canada 150 Skate Day held Dec 10 at Mile One Centre.  Participants were hosted by Skate Canada Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince of Wales Skating Club for an afternoon of skating lessons from the professional coaching staff of Prince of Wales , performances by skaters Boroka Albert, Elin Maskova and Synergy Intermediate Synchronized Skating Team.

The SCNL Community Skate Bank – a Canada 150 Legacy Project  of Heritage Canada was very well-utilized by many first-time skaters and added to today by Sport Newfoundland and Labrador who donated several additional pairs of skates to the skate bank! All participants enjoyed a great afternoon skating, Canada 150 & Rogers swag, snacks, Timbits and Tim Horton’s Coffee & Hot Chocolate !
