JES skating rink update!

A message from Glenn Steinman, JES' Physical Education teacher:

Thank you for all the support in the initiative to build a community Ice skating rink at Jericho Elementary School. Here is where we are.

During the fundraising phase a donor suggested that we reach out to the town, which turned out to be a great idea. The select board, after reviewing a new proposal and seeing community interest through both the surveys and the number of donations, decided to support the rink with ARPA funds left over from covid.

Our plan went from a hand built rink of plywood, to a kit designed for community use that will last for years. Approximately $4000 was raised by the community and an additional $9,561.52 of APRA funds will subsidize a quality rink kit similar to the one currently in Underhill.    

Phase II:

Our next steps are to order the rink and assemble once the rink arrives. Keep a lookout for the community build announcement. 

When the weather permits Underhill Jericho FD has volunteered to flood the rink.

Phase III: 

I will be building a committee to help with maintaining the rink during the skating season. Many have expressed interest in helping out, all are welcome. A future posting will have more information.


Many thanks to all those who helped make this project possible, I am truly grateful. A special thank you goes out to Kevin Sweeney, who has gone above and beyond and without his efforts and expertise the rink would not have been possible.
