    Pop Whalen Rink Update - 11/1/22

    Construction on the Pop Whalen rink renovation continues to progress ahead of schedule and within budget.  The dehumidifier that is necessary to open the rink showed up 60 days early, due to great planning and some good luck. 

    The Friends of Pop will be scheduling an Open House for December to give everyone a sneak peek.

    We are still on schedule to open by January 3rd!!

    For more information on the project and/or donating, visit the Friends of Pop Whalen
