Families create skating surface and sliding hill at St. Georges Beach
December 29, 2018
Two local families combined forces to create a Christmas gift for their own families and for the surrounding community in the form of a skating rink and sliding hill at the St. Georges Beach.
Gilles Avanthay who maintains the beach every day in the summer, wanted to create a gift for his visiting grandchildren and the community to enjoy over the Christmas holidays.
His son Michel had the necessary equipment to complete the task and was in town to get things started last week. Denis and Michel Boulet joined them to flood the ice, and were assisted by Dominique Cadieux and her children from Winnipeg.
There have been small numbers of people out to enjoy it since it opened this week, but folks who built it said they would love it if more people joined in the fun!
