Clinton Arena closes for season

The hockey and skating season has wrapped up in Clinton with a final busy weekend from March 4 to 6. The end of the season was celebrated with Ladies Hockey on Friday night, March 4, followed by a mixed adult hockey tournament on Saturday.

On Sunday, March 6 the old-timers held a clinic for the younger hockey players, and then the Minor Hockey players took to the ice for the last time this year. Cake was shared to celebrate the final game of minor hockey, and players presented a gift to their coach.

Some people expressed their disappointment that the arena’s season has come to an end, but with the lovely spring-like weather they will be sure to find something else to occupy their time.
