I know many of you didn’t grow up ice skating or roller skating for the most part, but those from the North may be seeking a bit of their past that is rare to find down here in the south.  We now have several places you can go this winter to get your ice skating fix.  When I grew up, the ice skating rink was the hang out to meet your friends, and when it got really cold we could skate on friend’s ponds.  I had friends that would get to know lots of people from different schools from hanging out at the roller rink and down here you can hardly find one!  Well, here they are, hope you can enjoy a fun weekend day with your children, or perhaps a birthday party.  We do have them, just not as many.
