Kin Park has been busy since early Saturday morning with volunteers and Kin members gathering to clear off the cement pad to prepare for the flooding of the surface. The temperatures have finally cooled enough to have the water freeze.
Preston Majeran with the Estevan Kinsmen Club, "Mother nature has finally cooperated enough that we have started putting ice in, we've got a couple more floods to go and were probably looking like the rink should be open on the weekend."
They have many volunteers helping to have the rink ready for all hours of the day, "Hopefully we have some lights going up soon, so we will have the permanent lights in there as well."
Majeran adds, "We do have a Zamboni, but it is not going to be going yet. We do need a storage facility for it, and that is our next goal for the park to build a new change shack."
The Kinsmen are helping the city again this year with tree disposal, "The bin for the trees is located over at the cemetery, for the disposal of the trees."
GFL Environmental Estevan has supplied the Kinsmen with a disposal bin. And the bins will be placed on the East side of the Cemetery Road. Just South of the cemetery gates. The bins are organic waste only and available until January 21st.
