A project is underway to upgrade the Cranberry Portage Arena. The Committee’s Debbie McLauchlan explains this year they are focusing their attention on replacing the ice surface lights. She says they’ve been very fortunate to get a helping hand from the Flin Flon Lions Club and as well they have a fund raising committee that’s been working to help raise the necessary funds as they operate on a pretty tight budget where the arena is concerned.
McLauchlan adds they will also be benefiting from the Manitoba Hydro rebate program. She says the arena has natural ice so its operation depends on the weather so it usually opens in mid to late December.
