Sister Bay's ice skating rink is opening for the first time this season, thanks to extremely cold weather. Public works crews and volunteers used the arctic-like conditions to put fresh water on the Teresa K Hilander Community Ice Rink. Ice Arena Director Cody Bolton says that effort made it possible to open Thursday afternoon.
Bolton says skates, hockey and broomball equipment are available for rent. He adds the concession stand is also open with hot chocolate and other beverages to help keep skaters warm.
