Demolition and remodel to Warinanco Skating Rink has begun

- Work crews have begun the demolition and remodel of the Warinanco Skating Rink. Due to the extensive renovation, there will be no open skating for the 2015-2016 season.

The only exception will be organized hockey programs. As the bulldozers and other machinery quickly demolish parts of the building, some onlookers said they felt a little sad as they spoke of their memories as kids, going to the rink on a regular basis.

“It’s a little sad, I have been going there for over 50 years,” said Roselle resident Roslyn Sandlin. Her husband Jeffery, staring at the machines knocking down the walls and scooping up the debris, stated, “Many of us went there as kids on Sunday afternoons and I remember always drinking hot chocolate, but I guess it’s out with the old and in with the new.”
