Please enjoy the photos and story. I have inserted links at the end of this story to previous stories that will show the effort that goes into making this day possible. There are also many volunteers to thank. They are listed in the stories as well.

Skating fun!

A lot of fun and  "maybe" some support from the milk carton

And one goes down with probably more to follow

The skating moms

The Norwich farm Creamery was on hand with their donation of hot cocoa.

And now for a second cup

 Happy faces

Even a pooch came to check out the fun

 Everyone is enjoying the goodies that were provided by the many parents. The Marion Cross PTO did an excellent job of recruiting the volunteers. 

Still smiling, must have been a fun day

See links below to previous stories showing the efforts of the volunteers who work very hard all season long.  I have tried to list all them and hope I didn't miss any.  Special thanks to Jill Kearney, Kristen Close and her volunteers, the Norwich DPW, and Fire department for their resources and efforts, and to the many residents and organizations.

And soon it will be a Skating Rink again: (See how it is built);
