Save an Old Barn from Extinction

October 24, 2011
by JRiddall

A campaign is under way to save the Belleville Memorial Arena which is a classic old rink and one of my favourites from days gone by. I wish the same type of group had been organized to save our own local rink, which has since been replaced by a shiny new fire station.

Check out the The Belleville Memorial Arena Preservation Society and I urge those with a nostalgic nature…and who doesn’t have that when it comes to our grand game…to check out and support the campaign to preserve a bit o’ hockey history.

      A very good cause Betty. My son has had the pleasure of playing in Belleville Memorial a couple of times and the boys really enjoyed it. The place just oozes nostalgia and the kids can sense it. I hope you are successful in your campaign to save her.
